HC Deb 17 June 1964 vol 696 cc182-3W
55. Sir J. Rodgers

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the desirability of pressing ahead with the maximum number of schemes for the provision of adequate car parks over and around railway stations within commuting range of London, he will call a conference of all local authorities concerned with a view to discussing how such facilities can best be financed in conjunction with British Railways.

Mr. Marples

Though I fully endorse the need for such car parks, I doubt whether a general conference is the best way to help at this stage. Circumstances vary so widely from case to case that individual handling is called for. This, I know, is already happening in many cases. The London traffic survey will, however, provide a sound factual basis from which to consider both the general position and individual cases.
