asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has for encouraging the provision of parking harbours where pavements are wide, similar to those in Berlin, so that extra parking space can be provided without the flow of traffic being impeded.

This is already done in some places, but there is not much scope for it. Where bays can reasonably be cut into pavements on busy streets in this country the space is normally better used by vehicles loading and unloading or picking up and setting down passengers. But highway authorities are free to provide parking space in this way where circumstances permit.
