HC Deb 14 February 1969 vol 777 c398W
Mr. Michael Heseltine

asked the Minister of Transport by what authority he will establish the 81 new regional offices planned for the 1970s for vehicle registration and vehicle and driver licensing.

Mr. Marsh

My general powers to discharge my responsibilities as I think best will enable me to operate local offices as necessary after I assume statutory responsibility for the vehicle and driving licensing system under the Bill now before Parliament. The Bill will involve no increase in the number of offices.
