asked the Minister of Transport if he will approve the proposals that have been submitted to him for the installation of parking meters in Bryanston Square, Montague Square and Wyndham Place in St. Marylebone, in view of the present inconvenience being caused to residents who are unable to leave their cars parked for short periods without risk of police action against them.

I approved the scheme and made an Order on 5th October, bringing it into operation on 27th November.


asked the Minister of Transport which local authorities outside the London area have applied for parking meter schemes.

Apart from Manchester and Bristol, where parking meters are now in operation, only Southend and Brighton have so far applied to me for an Order.
