note 272

Steven Norris, Minister for Transport in London, today announced that
no emergency parking will be made available in the capital if the
threatened strikes by RMT members on London's Underground take place
on 1 and 4 September. This follows the low take up of emergency
parking spaces during the previous strike on 25 August.

He said:

"With British Rail and London Buses operating normally, and
London Underground at least maintaining the same level of service
they achieved on the 25 August, there seems to be no pressing need
for commuters who normally travel in to the centre by public
transport to drive in."

For those who cannot make their journey by public transport and have
to use their cars, there are the usual commercial car parks available
throughout London.
