asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why on 10th May on the south side of Motcombe Street, S.W.1, a number of cars were impounded although there was no notice to say that parking was prohibited.

I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that traffic was brought to a standstill because vehicles parked on both sides of this street left insufficient space for through traffic. Five cars were removed by the police because they were causing obstruction.
