HC Deb 22 July 1959 vol 609 cc1264-5
41. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation why official driving tests in Northern Ireland are not accepted by him as being a true test of competence to drive a motor vehicle in the remainder of the United Kingdom.

Mr. Nugent

To give effect to my hon. Friend's suggestion would require legislation. As I said in reply to a Question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Down, South (Captain Orr) on 25th February, we will consider this favourably when an opportunity for traffic legislation offers.
