HC Deb 01 May 1968 vol 763 cc199-200W
65. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has to introduce further legislation to deal with the nuisance of overnight parking of lorries in residential areas.

Mr. Marsh

Clause 141(1)(c) of the Transport Bill proposes to give local authorities wider powers to regulate traffic in the interests of amenity. In addition, Clause 65 as amended in Committee will enable licensing authorities to revoke, suspend or curtail operators' licences for frequent convictions for parking illegally.

These new provisions, together with their existing powers of traffic regulation, should be sufficient to enable local authorities to deal with any such problem.
