HC Deb 03 May 1965 vol 711 cc128-9W
Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Minister of Transport what revenue was received by his Department in 1963, 1964 and the first quarter of 1965 as a result of the confiscation of driving test fees, where no test had taken place due to accident or illness, and where notice of cancellation had been received within three days of the date of test.

Mr. Tom Fraser

No analysis is made of the reasons given by driving test candidates who fail to attend and who either give no notice of cancellation or do not give the required three days' notice. It is not possible, therefore, to say what fees were forfeited by candidates as a result of their inability to attend owing to accident or illness.

The total amount received from all cancellations where the fees were forfeit amounted to:—

1963 (July/December) £49,073
1964 £141,182
1965 (January/March) £36,987
