HL Deb 06 October 1980 vol 413 c166WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether it is their policy to repeal Section 127 of the Highways Act 1959.

The Earl of AVON

No; although my right honourable friend the Minister of Transport has told the National Gipsy Education Council that he would in principle be willing to see Section 127(c) of that Act amended by the deletion of the words "or a gipsy".
