§ Sir George Young
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what has been the effect of the increase in parking fines introduced in September.
§ Dr. Summerskill
I have been asked to reply.
I assume the hon. Member is referring to the increase in the fixed penalty to £6 on 1st September, when owner liability was also introduced for parking offences dealt with under the fixed penalty system. It is too early to assess the effect of these measures.
