Immobilisation of Vehicles

Volume 502: debated on Monday 7 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how much his Department and its predecessor have paid in vehicle clamping charges incurred on (a) privately-owned and (b) publicly-owned land in each of the last 10 years; and if he will make a statement. (302743)

The policy of the Ministry is that the vehicle user is personally responsible for any fines incurred while the vehicle is allocated to them, including associated administration charges where applicable. This includes fines incurred by other users to whom the user has authorised use of the car i.e. additional drivers. The Ministry has not therefore incurred any expenditure on vehicle clamping charges.
