HC Deb 03 February 1960 vol 616 c125W
1. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement indicating the number of motor cars containing only one or two occupants which enter London daily at stated hours by routes covered by public transport; and if he will consider the implications of this in relation to traffic congestion in London streets and parking places.

Mr. Marples

The indications are that between 50 and 60 thousand cars come into Central London daily; about 90 per cent. of them carry two occupants or less. The hon. and learned Member may rest assured that the problem thus created is very much in my mind at the moment.
