§ 9. Mr. McBride
asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to increase the staff of driving examiners in Swansea.
§ Mr. Swingler
The complement of examiners at Swansea is six. While the established strength went down to four in August, temporary postings to fill the vacancies have cut the waiting period to the national average. Permanent replacements should be available by the spring from the current recruitment competition.
