HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c126W
94. Dr. Twinn

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what action he plans to take to improve tourist coach parking facilities in London.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The Department's report "Tourist Coaches in London" was published in March.

The report's main proposals include better information, a non-cash payment scheme using magnetic cards (coachcard), more on-street spaces near tourist attractions, more off-street spaces, coach couriers to give advice on-street about parking facilities and more effective enforcement. A number of these proposals are being tried out this summer.

Details of the proposals were announced last week. A copy of the announcement has been placed in the Library of the House.
