HC Deb 28 April 1966 vol 727 c49W
Mr. Hamling

asked the Minister of Transport what further powers she will take to enable local authorities to deal more expeditiously with the nuisance of motor cars left abandoned in the streets of London.

Mr. Swingler

Local authorities have powers to remove immediately from a street any vehicle they consider to be abandoned and after six weeks to dispose of it. I believe these powers to be adequate.
