§ 69. Mr. Dudley Smith
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what response he has had from local authorities to the official guidance he gave them over dealing with abandoned motor vehicles; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. MacColl
My right hon. Friend has had encouraging evidence that many local authorities are pursuing the suggestions in the circular issued last February. In addition, discussions are in progress between the local authority associations and representatives of the scrap metal and car-breaking trades on ways of improving co-operation.
