§ 38. Mr. Spence
asked the Minister of Transport if he will give serious consideration to the collation of information on a national basis, with a view to giving guidance notes to local authorities with regard to the provision of reserved public parking facilities for the vehicles driven by disabled people; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
Advice to local authorities on the provision of parking spaces for the disabled has already been issued, in Department of the Environment circular 23/75 and Department of Transport circular 4/79. It is for local authorities to decide, in the light of local needs and resources, what provision is made in their area.
