§ Mr. Darling
asked the Minister of Transport what advice he gives, under the Road Traffic Acts, to local authorities seeking powers to ban the parking of heavy road vehicles in residential streets.
§ Mr. Marples
Local authorities have power under the Road Traffic Act, 1960, to do this on roads outside the London Traffic Area without reference to me. This is essentially a local problem and I have not thought it necessary to give them general advice on the matter.
