HC Deb 09 December 1971 vol 827 cc388-9W
Sir Clive Bossom

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will seek powers to enable facilities to be provided for the disposal of vehicles which have become unroadworthy and are beyond economic repair, in ways which will reduce the likelihood that they will be abandoned on the public highway, or in other places where danger or inconvenience may be caused to the public.

Mr. Graham Page

Under the Civic Amenities Act, 1967, local authorities are already under an obligation to provide places where residents may deposit, free of charge, domestic refuse and unwanted vehicles. Local authorities are also obliged under this Act to remove abandoned vehicles and make arrangements for their disposal.
