HC Deb 24 February 1976 vol 906 cc147-8W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will table a commencement order pursuant to Section 24 of the Road Traffic Act 1974 to bring into operation provisions of the Act which make it an offence to park a vehicle on a footway, grass verge or cetral reservation of an urban road.

Dr. Gilbert

Before such an order can be introduced local authorities must be allowed time to prepare orders exempting from the ban those roads where footway parking should be allowed to continue.
