Volume 470: debated on Thursday 17 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what obligations are placed on local parking enforcement authorities to make refunds when an adjudicator has ruled a particular parking zone or bay illegal or not fully in compliance with legislation. (179698)

An adjudicator who allows an appeal against a penalty charge may direct an authority to refund any money already paid in respect of the penalty charge, sale, or release of the vehicle. The authority must comply with such a direction without delay. Adjudicators can only make such directions in relation to individual appeal cases.
