HC Deb 12 February 1958 vol 582 cc56-7W
97. Mr. Harris

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he is aware that there is a general desire among the residents in Heston and Isle-worth that the "no waiting" restriction in Hounslow High Street should begin at 10 a.m. and not 8.30 a.m. as proposed by the Minister, that the 10 a.m. time has the support of the borough council and the chamber of commerce and that if the 8.30 a.m. time is imposed it will cause hardship and inconvenience to persons who by reason of age or physical disability have to travel to and from shops by motor car; and if he will therefore reconsider his proposal with a view to fixing 10 a.m. as the time for the "no waiting" restriction.

Mr. Nugent

We have received representations from the Hounslow and District Chamber of Commerce in the sense suggested by my hon. Friend. A further examination of the roads involved in these restrictions has been made, but it does not show that it would be in the general interest of those using this street to depart from the hours which are to apply generally throughout the London Traffic Area.
