HC Deb 23 December 1964 vol 704 cc278-9W
41. Sir S. McAdden

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will refuse to authorise parking schemes submitted to him where there is inadequate provision for residents to park outside their own houses for reasonable periods.


My right hon. Friend has to consider each proposal on its merits. In doing so, he always has regard to the interests of residents. We also have to consider the interests of traffic and of all who wish to wait or park for varying periods. Residents should, in our view, always have at least equal rights with others. Where there is space not needed for short-term parking we will be glad to consider any practicable means for giving preference to residents.
