§ Mr. Leslie Huckfield
asked the Minister of Transport which local authorities he has asked to participate in recent experiments to encourage the use of smaller cars by commuters; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Marsh
Three local authorities, including Coventry, have been approached to find out whether they would co-operate in an experiment to establish whether there would be any advantage, in terms of the use of space in urban areas, in segregating cars parked off-street by size. Negotiations are continuing but no decisions168W have so far been reached. There is no question of discriminating, through the experiment, against large cars for city use.
