HC Deb 16 March 1960 vol 619 c96W
29. Mr. Snow

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is satisfied that due consideration has been given to the position of householders and commercial interests in the Pink Zone where rates are very high and where many persons and interests are at a disadvantage compared with equivalent interests immediately outside the Pink Zone; and, notwithstanding the difficulty in defining fairly the Pink Zone, whether he will give an undertaking Chat this matter will be reviewed from time to time, when representations are made.

Mr. Marples

The Pink Zone has been an interim measure aimed at restoring the streets in this part of the West End to their proper use for passage and access in the area where this is most needed. In due course more permanent schemes of parking control will be incorporated, such as the parking meter scheme which will cover the remainder of Mayfair from the 4th April. Stricter parking control can be of considerable benefit to householders and commercial interests in terms of increased mobility and means of access to premises. I can assure the hon. Member that I shall not hesitate to extend these benefits where necessary.
