HC Deb 27 February 1963 vol 672 c161W
90. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the fact that parking of cars has now been permitted outside No. 1 Bridge Street during meetings of the National Economic Development Council, whereas previously members of the public, Members' of Parliament secretaries and others engaged on Parliamentary duties had been prohibited from parking there, if he will take steps to permit car parking in this area.

Mr. Marples

I understand that the police did not object to parking in Bridge Street on a recent Sunday, when traffic conditions were quiet. Parking is not prohibited by regulation on Sundays but the laws relating to obstruction apply. I do not feel able to alter the waiting restrictions between 8.30 a.m. and 6.30 p.m. on weekdays, when traffic is busy.
