Mr. PERCY HARRIS
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any change, provisional or otherwise, has been made in the method of examination of motor-cab drivers, pending his consideration of the Report of the Departmental Committee; and, if so, what is the nature of that change?
§ Sir J. SIMON
Acting on the suggestion of the recent Departmental Committee, the Commissioner of Police as an experiment allowed candidates the option of a written examination instead of an oral examination. This experiment was tried for a month, and the results were not in favour of the new system.
