asked the Minister of Transport what was the percentage of failures among applicants for driving licences during the three months prior to the announcement of the imposition of the basic cut in petrol; and what is the percentage of failures since the cut has been imposed.

Mr. Barnes

During the three months ended 30th August, 1947, 37 per cent. of driving test candidates failed. Since that date 36.8 per cent. of the candidates have failed.
