§ 125. Mr. Steward
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider giving directions that no action should be taken by the police against any motorist who parks his car on the left-hand side of a one-way street in the London Metropolitan area.
§ Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe
I have no power to give directions to the Metropolitan Police as to their action in matters of this kind. I am, however, informed by the Commissioner of Police that in his view any such direction as is suggested would be inadvisable, since conditions in one-way streets vary greatly, and there are occasions when parked vehicles, wherever they may be left, give rise to obstruction necessitating police action.
