HC Deb 08 April 1976 vol 909 c243W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to give the police effective control over the activities of mobile ice cream and hot-dog vans.

Dr. Summerskill

In so far as these vans may give rise to problems which are for the police to deal with—such as obstruction of the highway—the existing law appears to give sufficient powers of control. If the hon. Member has any particular problem in mind I should be grateful if he would write to me about it.
