To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Earl Attlee on 19 June (WA 290), whether they will clarify the guidance on signage about parking for blue badge holders in red route parking bays to ensure that signs state clearly that blue badge holders are only entitled to park for up to three hours between the hours of 10am and 4pm.

Section 10 of Chapter 3 of the Traffic Signs Manual details upright signs for disabled badge holder parking in red route bays. The guidance shows an example sign (Figure 10-9) that illustrates provision for disabled badge holders to park in a red route bay for up to three hours during the times of 10 am and 4 pm. The length of time parking is permitted and times of operation signed may vary to reflect the provisions of the underlying traffic regulation order. I am not aware of any concerns that this guidance is unclear.
