HC Deb 24 October 1956 vol 558 cc54-5W
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 the Royal Parks, but I have not yet decided whether it will be necessary to do so.
