Mr Redwood’s intervention during the debate on the London Local Authorities and Transport for London (No. 2) Bill, 11 September

Mr John Redwood (Wokingham) (Con): If such (electric) cars are popular, surely the private sector will provide charging points anyway. We do not have municipal petrol stations, so what is the problem?

Bob Blackman (Harrow East) (Con): The thrust of the amendments is to require public authorities to provide charging points; the thrust of the Bill is to allow them to provide charging points if they so wish. That is why I am urging my hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch not to press his amendments.
