HC Deb 19 July 1965 vol 716 c162W
Mr. William Wilson

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take action to ensure that, before any person is appointed to the position of a driving test examiner, all facts regarding the antecedent activities of such person material to the appointment are known to the Minister, in order to prevent the kind of situation, of which details have been sent to him by the hon. Member for Coventry, South, which arose in respect of the appointment of a driving test examiner in the Coventry district.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Newly appointed driving examiners who have previously been employed on the instruction of learner drivers are not posted initially to centres to which they have recently taken candidates for tests. I see no need, as a general rule, to go further than this.
