HC Deb 29 February 1972 vol 832 c100W
Dame Patricia Hornsby-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many complaints have been lodged with the Sidcup police during the past six months due to the trespass, encroachment, vandalism, public nuisance, public danger and other unlawful activities of mobile caravan dwellers parked at varying sites adjacent to the A20 and within the Chislehurst Division; and what action has been taken.

Mr. Sharples

The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis tells me that 82 complaints were recorded in the last six months. The police took action by way of arrest, summons or, as appropriate, report to the local authority in over 30 cases where there was evidence that a criminal offence might have been committed.
