HC Deb 23 January 1981 vol 997 c261W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, as the Metropolitan Police have decided to hold an onslaught on illegal parking, he will ask the police to extend this action to include dealing with the offence of failure to have and exhibit a current road fund licence disc.

Mr. Mayhew

I understand from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that, in the course of dealing with parking offences in this exercise, officers will also report to the Department of Transport any instances of failure to display a valid vehicle excise licence.
