§ Mr. Moate
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is satisfied with the position under the Road Vehicles Lighting (Standing Vehicles) (Exemption) (General) Regulations 1972 whereby it is permissible to park vehicles after dark in any road which is subject to a 30 m.p.h. speed limit regardless of whether any kind of street lighting is in operation; whether he has received representations about the working of this feature of the regulations; and if so what replies he has sent.
§ Mr. Peyton
The available evidence is that these regulations have not had an adverse effect on road safety. In replying to a number of representations I have explained the need for uniform regulations on parking at night. I have promised to keep the position under review.
