§ Mr. Adley
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the implications of the new contract wheel clamping service for the level of illegal parking by coaches; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
The Commissioner has informed me that wheel clamps suitable for fixing to coaches are available to all the wheel clamping teams. As with any vehicle, where the driver is present the police will normally direct the driver to move the vehicle rather than fixing a wheel clamp.
