HC Deb 23 November 1960 vol 630 c108W
63. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Transport in view of the two-hour limit notified at many official parking-places, and of the desirability and practice of motor car drivers leaving their cars at such parking places near suburban Underground and railway stations for several hours while they are at business in inner London, what consultations he has had with local authorities in order substantially to extend the waiting time allowed at those parking-places or to abolish any time limit.

Mr. Marples

As I informed the hon. Member on 27th January, local authorities have been consulted by the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee. Long-term street parking places for 82 cars have this month been authorised in West Ham, near Stratford Station. A pilof scheme for other long-term street parks is being prepared.
