§ 78. Mr. Beswick
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what steps he has taken to satisfy himself that the proposal to extend the no waiting restriction by three hours in the morning is equally necessary throughout all the affected streets in the Metropolitan Police area; and, in particular, what inquiries he has made to satisfy himself that it is necessary to impose this restriction from 8.30 a.m. in Uxbridge High Street.
§ Mr. Watkinson
I have consulted the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee on the future hours152W of waiting restrictions. It has strongly advised me that these restrictions should now be extended to cover the early morning peak traffic flow uniformly throughout the Metropolitan Police District. Before reaching this conclusion the Committee considered the varying views expressed by the local authorities affected, including the Uxbridge Borough Council. As I have already announced. I have accepted that advice.
