Metropolitan Police: Impounded Vehicles

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 8 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many vehicles in the Metropolitan Police area were impounded following reference to the motor insurance database in each of the last two years; and if she will make a statement. (175372)

This information is not collected centrally. I understand from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that in 2006 an estimated 10,000 and in 2007 an estimated 13,000 vehicles were seized.
