§ Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport
asked the Minister of Works who are entitled to park their cars on the Horse Guards Parade; and whether it is proposed to subject this parking to control by parking meters when parking meters are generally introduced into the London area.
§ Mr. Buchan-Hepburn
Horse Guards Parade is controlled as part of St. James's Park. Limited car parking facilities are provided for occupants of buildings adjoining the Parade, for visitors to those buildings and for important official functions in the neighbourhood. The Road Traffic Act, 1956, gives me power to make Regulations to charge for car parking in 55W the Royal Parks, but I have not yet decided whether it will be necessary to do so.
