§ 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.
