The Lib Dems will be delivering on another manifesto commitment when car clamping on private land is banned.

Liberal Democrat Ministers Lynne Featherstone and Norman Baker have announced that car clamping on private land is to be banned as part of the Freedom Bill this Autumn.

Home Office Minister Lynne Featherstone MP when making the announcement said: "The Government is committed to ending the menace of rogue private sector wheel clampers once and for all.

"For too long motorists have fallen victim to unscrupulous tactics by many clamping firms. Reports of motorists being marched to cash points or left stranded after their car has been towed are simply unacceptable.

"A ban on clamping and towing on private land will end this abuse and companies who decide to flout new laws will face severe penalties."
