HC Deb 10 June 1959 vol 606 cc90-1W
Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation why, in his advice to local authorities regarding the making of parking places orders under the Road Traffic Act, 1956, he has only recommended them to make reasonable provision for commercial vehicles and not recommended that all metered parking bays should be available to all classes of vehicles, including goods vehicles, as in the Mayfair experiment.

Mr. Nugent

The advice was given in this way to preserve the discretion which the 1956 Act allows to local authorities promoting such schemes.
