HC Deb 23 October 1979 vol 972 c148W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Minister of Transport if he will set out in the Official Report his reasons for postponing implementation of section 7 of the Road Traffic Act 1974 relating to powers of local authorities to ban the parking of cars on pavements.

Mr. Fowler

I gave my reasons in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Harrogate (Mr. Banks) on 27 July. The implementation of the similar powers, which apply to London alone, contained in the GLC (General Powers) Act 1974, would of course be a matter for the GLC.—[Vol. 971, c. 631–32.]
