§ Mr. Chope
[holding answer 20 March 1991]: The implementation of the area coach ban and the associated costs are matters for Westminster city council. The Department's approval for a coach ban in the Victoria/Belgravia/Bayswater/Sussex Gardens /Bryanston areas which was required under the Local Government Act 1985 because of the potential effect on traffic flow in the strategic road network, was given on 16 October 1990.
