HL Deb 27 September 2000 vol 616 c179WA
Lord Berkeley

asked the Chairman of Committees:

Whether, when workplace parking is introduced by the Greater London Authority, an exemption for either Members of the House or officials will be sought; and, if so, for what reasons. [HL3774]

The Chairman of Committees (Lord Boston of Faversham)

The Greater London Authority Act 1999 gave the Greater London Authority the power to introduce a workplace parking levy on persons providing workplace parking places in Greater London. However, I understand that at present the authority has no plans to introduce such a levy. In the absence of any plans, it is not possible to say whether the House will seek any exemptions from the levy. If any proposals are brought forward in the future, the appropriate House committees (in the first instance, the Administration and Works Sub-Committee) will be consulted as to whether any exemptions should be sought.
