HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 c124W
34. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the prosecution of motorists whose cars have had minor collisions with stationary or moving objects, if he will instruct the Metropolitan Police to avoid prosecution where there has been no injury to persons and agreement is reached between the motorist and the owner of the slightly damaged property in respect of compensation or repair of the damage; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Woodhouse

No. The enforcement of the traffic law in the Metropolitan Police District is a matter for the Commissioner of Police.
