HC Deb 22 February 1965 vol 707 cc32-3W
Sir M. Galpern

asked the Minister of Transport how many examiners engaged on driving tests were dismissed during the last five years; and what were the reasons for dismissal.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Two were dismissed after conviction on charges of bribery; two had their appointments terminated during their probationary period for failure to reach the required standard of competence; and one other had his appointment cancelled during the same period on medical grounds. Seventeen more failed to pass their initial training course.
