HC Deb 12 February 1973 vol 850 c256W
Mr. David Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will seek to secure the introduction of driving licences valid throughout the EEC.

Mr. Peyton

The Government are already taking part in studies being carried out by various international organisations to achieve recognition of national driving licences. As explained in my reply to the right hon. Member for Sheffield, Park (Mr. Mulley) on 5th February, I am considering the draft directive on the subject published by the EEC Commission.—[Vol. 850, c.36–7.]
