§ Sir Clive Bossom
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations have been made to him for extension of the powers and duties of traffic wardens; and if he will give an assurance that there is no intention to provide powers of arrest.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
I am considering, with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport, the proposals for giving further powers to traffic wardens which are contained in the report of the Police Advisory Board Working Party on Police Manpower, published on 11th January. 115W These do not include any proposal to give traffic wardens powers of arrest of police constables.
