HC Deb 23 June 1972 vol 839 c187W
Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Minister of State for Defence, in view of the fact that in recent months four children have been knocked down as they crossed roads between parked cars where they could not be seen by a driving motorist, if he will take urgent action to provide more car parking space off roads in the Keyham area of Devonport for the employees in Her Majesty's Dockyard.

Mr. Kirk

Action is in hand to provide more parking spaces and we have drawn up plans to provide another 200 spaces in 1972–73 over and above the number which I forecast in answer to my hon. Friend on 28th January. Of the 400 spaces to be provided in this financial year, 250 are in the Keyham area and should ease the situation there. We hope also to provide 650 spaces at Weston Mill Lake by the end of 1973, which should further ease the problem.—[Vol. 829, c.530–1.]
