HC Deb 19 May 1998 vol 312 cc300-1W
Sir Patrick Cormack

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to restrict the access of delivery vehicles to Central London during daylight hours. [41846]

Ms Glenda Jackson

Traffic management on most roads in central London is the responsibility of the boroughs. The boroughs already have powers to restrict loading and unloading and the Government have no plans to change them. As noted in the White Paper on proposals for modernising the governance of London, the management of freight traffic on the capital's roads will be an important policy area within the integrated transport strategy for London that the new Mayor will have a duty to produce.
