HC Deb 23 March 1965 vol 709 c41W
45. Mr. Wainwright

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if, in order to encourage local authorities to get rid of the menace of old abandoned cars, he will take steps to make a reasonable grant towards the cost of a suitable shearing and press plant.

Mr. MacColl

No. There are various ways of dealing with the problem of old motor cars as local authorities were advised in Circular 8/65, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy. Local authorities need not all have plant of their own.

53. Mr. Lipton

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what response he has had from local authorities in providing centres for disposing of unwanted motor cars.

Mr. MacColl

Circular 8/65, advising local authorities on methods of disposing of old motor cars was issued only on 11th February. It is too early to judge the results yet.
