§ Mr. Brotherton
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what is the estimated cost per vehicle on the road of the Swansea Vehicle and Driver Licensing Centre, both at the present time and when the Centre becomes fully operational;
(2) when it is estimated that the Swansea Vehicle and Driver Licensing Centre will be fully operational.
§ Mr. Marks
The cost in 1975–76 of issuing vehicle excise licences and of handling associated registration transactions, etc., is estimated to average about £2.2 per vehicle. By 1978–79, when the centralised system will be fully operational, the cost, on a comparable price basis, is expected to be about £1.7 per vehicle.
