asked the Minister of Transport what progress is being made with the provision of off-street parking in the central London area.

In central London, some 2,400 new public off-street car spaces will have been opened this year, bringing the total to some 18,500 spaces. By early 1963 there will be 2,600 more spaces, including 1,070 under Hyde Park. About 10,000 further spaces are planned for the future and others are being considered. In addition I understand from the London County Council that private garages for use with new development are now being built in central London at the rate of 6,000 spaces a year.
