Immobilisation of Vehicles: South East

Volume 504: debated on Wednesday 27 January 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how many cars have been impounded in (a) Southend West constituency, (b) Essex, (c) the Metropolitan Police area of London and (d) England and Wales in each year since 2005; and at what total cost in each case in each such year. (313277)

It is not possible to provide the number of cars impounded or information by geographical area. A contract is in place to provide a wheel-clamping service, which may lead to impounding, on vehicles in the United Kingdom. The contract is on a fixed price basis for the entire service. Neither costs of impounding individual vehicles, nor costs of the operation within geographical locations are available.
