§ 62. Mr. Carol Johnson
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in her contingency plans, in the event of petrol rationing becoming necessary, she proposes to continue driving tests; and whether, on the Ministry's examiners being required for other duties, she will consider utilising the Register of Approved Instructors to replace them during the emergency.
§ Mrs. Castle
I cannot yet say whether driving tests would need to be suspended or curtailed. But I would not consider it appropriate or desirable for tests to be conducted otherwise than by Ministry examiners.
