§ Sir M. Galpern
asked the Minister of Transport how many examiners engaged on driving tests were dismissed during 33W 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.
