To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with Westminster City Council about the reasons for Parliament Square being regularly obstructed by black cabs; and what action that are taking as a result of any such discussions.
20 March 2019
The Department has not had any discussions with Westminster City Council about obstructions around Parliament Square. Transport in London is devolved to the Mayor of London and managed by Transport for London (TfL). Roads in London are managed by TfL and the relevant London Borough. It therefore falls to TfL and Westminster City Council to deal with traffic management around Parliament Square.
