My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills has not made an assessment of the impact on London's economy of Westminster city council's proposal for the extension of parking charges during the evenings and weekends. This is a primarily a matter for the council, taking account of the views of stakeholders including businesses in the area.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has had no discussions with Westminster city council on the impact of its proposals to extend parking charges during the evenings and weekends.
