HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 cc409-10W
20. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the penalty of £5 for a person found guilty of using a commercial van in the Royal Parks was first imposed and how the present fine of £20 compares in value with the original penalty.

Mr. Amery

The penalty of £5 was introduced on 15th December, 1926. I am advised that this is approximately equivalent to £21 today.
