holding answer 9 March 2009

The Royal Parks (TRP) advise that a consultation is underway about the possibility of introducing parking charges in Bushy and Richmond parks and the level of the fee. No decision has been taken about whether the proposal will be adopted or the level of charge and nor will it be until the consultation is complete.

The answer is an evasion. What, repeat WHAT (if any) estimate has been made of the likely revenues arising from the introduction of the proposed charges for parking in Richmond Park, please? Surely some forecast must have been made based on an assumed range of charges and assumed levels of usage?
