§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will discuss with those concerned the replacement of the present parking meters with the plastic card insertion types restricted to one feeding within 24 hours.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The Department is always ready to discuss advances in parking meter design and technology with those concerned. Some prototype card-operated meters have been produced, and there is interest in their development, but no local authority has yet submitted a design to us for approval.
