§ 65. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce legislation to make it illegal for vendors of ice-cream to sell confectionery from motor-vehicles within 200 yards of school gates, without written permission to do so from the local education authority after consideration has been given to road safety factors.
§ Mr. Marples
It is already illegal for ice-cream vans to be parked where they would cause danger by obstruction or where they contravene statutory waiting restrictions. I do not think additional legislation of the sort proposed is necessary.
