HC Deb 14 March 1967 vol 743 c29W
36. Mr. Longden

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what progress has been made by local authorities in the collection and dismantling of derelict motor vehicles and the recovery of scrap, as suggested in his Departments Circular No. 8/65.

Mr. MacColl

Progress has been considerable. Many councils remove abandoned cars and accept unwanted ones from residents. A few councils dismantle the cars but most have disposal arrangements with local scrap merchants or car breakers. The Greater London Council are considering tenders from firms willing to set up plant to scrap all derelict cars in Greater London.
