HC Deb 24 March 1960 vol 620 c62W
68. Mr. F. M. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department by what authority the Metropolitan Police require, when a vehicle is impounded for causing an obstruction, that only the individual in control of the vehicle at the time, as opposed to his duly authorised agent, or the owner of the vehicle, is entitled to collect it.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that he imposes no such requirement.
