HC Deb 22 June 1993 vol 227 cc78-9W
Mr. Tipping

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the number and names of individuals and organisations who responded to the public consultation exercise on wheel clamping.

Mr. Maclean

Approximately 2,400 copies of the consultation paper were distributed and 184 responses have been received. Respondents were not asked to agree to the publication of their names when their comments were invited and it would not be appropriate now to identify them. However, the table shows the categories to which these respondents belong.

hospitals 7
estates 10
national organisations 9
local organisations 22
individuals 8
Wheelclamping companies 11
Motorists 13
MPs and Members of the House of Lords 8
Local authorities 46
Police 23
Other bodies (including other Government departments and public and private organisations representing a wide variety of interests) 27

In addition, since 1 April 1992, we have received 199 letters forwarded by MPs and Members of the House of Lords, and 107 letters sent direct to the Home Office or other Government Departments commenting on this issue.
