Immobilisation of Vehicles

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 23 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when she plans to publish the feasibility study relating to wheel clamping on private land recently received by her from the Security Industry Authority; and if she will make a statement. (270279)

The Home Secretary announced on 3 April 2009 her intention to launch a formal consultation in late April on the options for how best to regulate the wheel clamping industry. The consultation document, which includes the results of the SIA’s feasibility study, will be published, and copies will be placed in the House Libraries.

The Government’s preferred option will be to introduce compulsory licensing by the Security Industry Authority of wheel clamping companies.
