§ Mr. Willis
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what representations he has received regarding the decision of North Yorkshire County Council to reject the proposals by Harrogate Borough Council for the use of on-street car parking revenues for traffic management in Harrogate; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Ms Glenda Jackson
No representations have been received regarding this matter. Under the provisions of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 it is for the County Council as highway authority to decide how any surpluses from on-street parking charges are spent, subject to the restrictions set out in Section 55 of the Act.
