Parking (Code of Practice) Bill (Ways and Means)

Volume 645: debated on Tuesday 17 July 2018

Motion made, and Question proposed,

That, for the purposes of any Act resulting from the Parking (Code of Practice) Bill, it is expedient to authorise:

(1) the imposition of a levy for the purpose of meeting expenditure incurred by virtue of the Act, and

(2) the payment of sums into the Consolidated Fund.—(Rishi Sunak.)

I am grateful to the Minister for moving this Ways and Means motion. If agreed to by the House, it will allow further consideration of the Parking (Code of Practice) Bill to take place. The Bill has all-party support, and I commend the motion to the House.

I want to indicate my support for the Bill. It is an excellent initiative being brought forward by the right hon. Member for East Yorkshire (Sir Greg Knight), and it enjoys much cross-party support. Many of our constituents across the country have been affected by the terrible activities of parking companies, including many in my own constituency, and I offer my wholehearted support for the Ways and Means motion.

I heartily congratulate the right hon. Member for East Yorkshire (Sir Greg Knight) on securing this important Ways and Means motion. My constituency is also blighted by private parking companies, and I look forward to joining him in Committee to ensure that this issue is resolved.

Question put and agreed to.
