Darren Millar's proposals to allow heavily pregnant women to park cars in designated spaces in Wales has been rejected by AMs.
During the debate on 9 December 2009 Mr Millar introduced his preferential parking scheme
legislative competence order
The Conservative AM for Clwyd West, wants women to have the same rights as disabled blue badge holders during their last three months of pregnancy.
This bid for further powers from Westminster would enable the assembly to establish a preferential parking scheme for women in the third trimester of their pregnancy.
However the proposal was deemed as unnecessary by many AMs.
The Economy and Transport Minister Ieuan Wyn Jones said that the assembly didn't need these extra powers because there was already a potential to include pregnant under the current blue badge scheme.
He added that local authorities could also amend their traffic regulations to provide parking places to pregnant women if they so wished.
