§ 30. Mr. A. Evans
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that on main roads in London, and particularly on the A.1 road at Holloway, heavy goods vehicles are allowed to park for long periods and all night; and what progress he has made in his consultations with local authorities about an improved system of traffic signs.
§ Mr. Woodhouse
I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that there is now no regular parking of heavy goods vehicles on the A.1road at Holloway, although a limited number of lorries are parked for short periods near a coffee stall. The police give attention to the parking of lorries in the nearby side streets and take action when offences are seen to occur.
Consultations about improved traffic signs are a matter for my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport.
