HC Deb 04 May 1966 vol 727 cc107-8W
56. Mr. Frederic Harris

asked the Minister of Transport if she will introduce legislation to deal with the ever-increasing number of abandoned cars.

Mr. John Morris

As far as cars abandoned on roads are concerned, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 28th April to the hon. Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Hamling). The disposal of cars abandoned elsewhere is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government; his Department issued a circular to local authorities in February of last year which has led, in many cases, to improved arrangements for dealing with this problem.
