HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 cc384-5W
35. Mr. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the Functions of Traffic Wardens Order, 1965, will enable traffic wardens, when it is necessary to remove cars which have been parked illegally, to drive them away to the pound, thereby relieving the police of that duty.

Mr. George Thomas

No. But my right hon. and learned Friend is discussing with chief officers of police the extent to which it would be appropriate for this duty to be carried out by specially trained civilians.
