HC Deb 24 November 1964 vol 702 c167W
89. Mr. Iremonger

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he is taking to assist local authorities in dealing with the problem of abandoned cars dumped in streets.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Local authorities already have adequate powers to remove and dispose of vehicles abandoned on roads. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government intends in the near future to issue a circular to local authorities giving guidance on the vehicle disposal problem generally.
