HC Deb 16 May 1980 vol 984 c699W
Mr. Sheerman

asked the Minister of Transport how many miles there are of motorist-free zones in the United Kingdom; and if he will list them in terms of regional authorities.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

This information is not available, but in England some 650 orders have been made extinguishing vehicular rights over highways under the Town and Country Planning Act 1971, and some 60 order, since 1974, under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1967, prohibiting access by vehicles for more than eight hours in every 24. I will be sending the hon. Member a list showing the towns and streets in respect of which orders have been made in each category.
