To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what guidelines are issued to London local authorities regarding consistency in penalties for parking on single yellow lines and residents' parking meters by (a) private and (b) public traffic wardens; and if he will make a statement.

I have been asked to reply.My Department issued guidance to London local authorities in August 1992—"Traffic Management and Parking Guidance", local authority circular 5/92, paragraph 12.5. This says that penalties under the new local authority parking enforcement system should broadly correspond with the levels of fixed penalties for the non-endorsable parking offences enforced by the police and the traffic warden service.
