HC Deb 08 February 1968 vol 758 cc225-6W
Mr. Cordle

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government it he will issue a circular to all local authorities drawing their attention to the slow rate of progress in the implementation of the Civic Amenities Act, 1967, regarding the disposal of abandoned motor cars and recommending special measures for expediting this work.

Mr. Skeffington

The power in the Act to dispose of abandoned motor cars became available to local authorities only on 27th January, 1968. I have no reason to believe that local authorities are delaying the implementation of these provisions.
