As a member of the Communities and Local Government Committee, Bob welcomed the opportunity to speak during the debate on the London Local Authorities Bill. Bob noted a number of topics discussed during the Third Reading, including that of turnstiles on public toilets, and the sale of cars on the internet. Bob expanded on this issue and explained that, at present, if people sell cars on the public highway and put notices in the cars, that is an offence and action can be taken. However, if unscrupulous individuals do not put notices in the cars but just park them on the public highway and advertise them on the internet, no action can be taken. The Bill allows council officers to clamp down on that practice, which is a scourge on many London streets. This measure, and the Bill as a whole, will be widely welcomed across London.
