To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Kramer on 15 January (HL3977) about the Union flag being printed on driving licences issued to drivers in England, Scotland and Wales, whether licences issued to drivers in Northern Ireland will have that flag printed on them; and if not, why not.

The Union flag will not be printed on driving licences issued to motorists in Northern Ireland.

Driver licensing is a devolved matter and is the responsibility of the Department of the Environment in Northern Ireland. The UK Government is unable to take a decision to include the Union flag on licences issued to motorists in Northern Ireland.
