Traffic Management Act 2004

Volume 718: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord Adonis on 5 March (WA 392), what was the outcome of their liaison with the Local Government Association about the view of its members outside London on the introduction of the moving traffic contraventions provisions of Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004. [HL3191]

The Department for Transport now has a good understanding of the various traffic management problems that would be tackled with these powers by the very few local authorities that are actively campaigning for them. We would still like to see what further evidence there is from individual local authorities and the positive impact such powers would provide in local situations, and on this basis we propose to review the position in the summer.
