HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 c146W
67. Mr. Gough

asked the Minister of Transport how many parking meters are now operating in the Metropolitan Police area of London; and what steps he has taken to warn their users against committing a breach of the Metropolitan Police Act, 1839, by cleaning their cars or allowing them to be cleaned whilst so parked.

Mr. Marples

There are 2,288 parking meters in the Metropolitan Police District. The provisions of the Metropolitan Police Act, 1839, about the cleaning of cars are in no way affected by parking meter orders, and no special steps would therefore seem to be necessary.
