HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 c281W
43. Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether his Department has studied any recent proposals from the Greater London Council or the local authorities of other major cities for an experimental private car prohibition on a temporary basis in inner city areas.

Mr. Peyton

Local authorities in many towns use traffic management and pedestrianisation schemes to restrain car traffic. I know of no proposal by an authority to prohibit cars from the whole of an inner city area.
