§ Mr. Sanders
To ask the hon. Member for Roxburgh and Berwickshire, representing the House of Commons Commission, if he will make it his policy to charge a market rate on Members' parking facilities; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Kirkwood
The Commission has no plans at present to introduce a market charge on Members' parking facilities. However, the Greater London Authority Act 1999 will allow the Authority or the London Borough of Westminster to introduce a licensing scheme for parking in the Palace of Westminster, under which they may levy a charge on the two Houses. The Commission will consider the matter if and when either authority makes proposals for a licensing scheme.
