HC Deb 28 July 1965 vol 717 cc117-8W
57. Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Minister of Transport what proposals he has to enable disabled car drivers who are unable to walk to be exempt from normal parking regulations and to be enabled to park outside their homes.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I have already ensured that disabled drivers are exempted from charges and time limits in parking meter zones. But it would be impracticable to grant them general exemption from parking regulations. The police everywhere exercise discretion in favour of drivers displaying the special badge issued under the scheme sponsored by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health.
