HC Deb 11 December 1990 vol 182 c344W
Mr. Cryer

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the response to his Department's discussion document issued to local authorities on solving the problems created by parking on pavements.

Mr. Chope

Over 450 responses were received, expressing a wide range of views. We have concluded that new statutory powers are needed to allow authorities to target problem areas effectively. We are now discussing with the local authorities advice on available engineering measures to deter parking on footways and verges.
