Oral Answers to Questions — Transport – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 16th November 1955.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Watkins:

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is aware that applicants for driving tests in the Abergavenny district have been informed that they have to wait a period of four months before having a test; and what arrangements there are for tests to be undertaken when examiners are not available due to illness.

The normal waiting period for a test at the Abergavenny centre at the present time is seven to eight weeks. To alleviate the difficulties arising from the illness of the examiner I am arranging for an additional examiner to be available there from the end of this month.
