§ 65. Mr. Russell
asked the Minister of Transport what objections were lodged against unilateral waiting regulations before they were introduced in Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds or Bristol; and how they were overcome.
Over 100 objections in all were made to the proposals to introduce unilateral waiting in the six cities mentioned, and some of the proposed Orders were modified to meet them. A public inquiry was held in the case of Liverpool. The Birmingham Order was amended further after it had come into force.
§ 66. Mr. Russell
asked the Minister of Transport how far the unilateral waiting regulations are operating successfully in Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds and Bristol; and to what extent difficulties have been encountered in enforcing them.
We understand that these Orders are on the whole operating successfully and we have not been informed of any serious difficulty in enforcing them.
