§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why, in view of the reports made to the police at Tottenham Station by the hon. Member for West Ham, North, months ago, cars and lorries, many untaxed and uninsured, are allowed to park on both sides of Chestnut Road, thus impeding the flow of traffic both east and west; and, as this road is a main bus route, why these vehicles are also allowed to park without lights during the lighting-up period.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that the police do take action, to the extent that their resources permit, to deal with obstruction and lighting offences in Chestnut Road.
