§ Mr. Geofffrey Finsberg
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when 518W he intends to bring into effect the appropriate sections of the Road Traffic Act 1974 and the Greater London Council (General Powers) Act 1974 which will enable the councils of London boroughs to prosecute owners of vehicles parking on the footway.
§ Dr. Gilbert
I intend in the near future to make a decision on the commencement date for Section 7 of the Road Traffic Act 1974. The commencement of Section 15 of the Greater London Council (General Powers) Act 1974 is a matter for that council.
