HC Deb 22 June 1960 vol 625 cc46-7W
69. Mr. John Hall

asked the Minister of Transport if the charge made for issuing driving licences is designed only to cover the cost of issue or as a method of raising revenue.

Mr. Marples

Fees for driving licences were fixed by the Road Traffic Act, 1956 on the basis that over the years there should be no loss to the Exchequer.
