HC Deb 22 July 1959 vol 609 c115W
33. Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in view of the fact that it would take too long and be too expensive to keep the detailed records of the number of applicants for driving licences who have passed the driving test, he will cease to require applicants for licences to provide this information.

Mr. Nugent

No; this information is required to enable local taxation authorities to trace, where necessary, the original qualification of an applicant for a full driving licence.
