HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 c295W
61. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what consideration is given to the records of drivers before a prosecution for parking offences is instituted in the metropolitan area.

Mr. George Thomas

The Commissioner of Police informs me that the decision whether or not to institute proceedings for parking offences is normally taken without making a search for particulars of any previous convictions.
