HC Deb 19 February 1951 vol 484 cc137-8W
85. Brigadier Medlicott

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the continued obstruction to traffic caused by cars parked on both sides of the streets in the London area; and if he will now arrange for an immediate experiment in unilateral parking in all the streets in Central London with a view to lessening the serious congestion in that area before the opening of the Festival of Britain.

Mr. Barnes

I am aware that difficulties are caused by indiscriminate parking and I am now considering proposals for unilateral waiting in certain streets in Central London. Further suggestions are contained in the Report by the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee on traffic congestion in inner London which I have recently received and which will shortly be published.
