HC Deb 12 February 1993 vol 218 c862W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what research has been undertaken on the night and weekend exemption system for lorries in parts of London, on its costs and benefits, and on the average cost of each lorry refused an exemption permit in each year of operation of the scheme.

Mr. Norris

The Londonwide overnight and weekend lorry ban was adopted by a number of London borough councils following the abolition of the Greater London council. It is administered by the London Boroughs Transport Committee. None of the information requested is readily available to my Department.
