HC Deb 16 January 1978 vol 942 c12W
Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop

asked the Secretary of State for Transport at what locations in England courses are run by his Department to qualify garage mechanics to perform the Ministry of Transport tests; and what is the current delay in each between an application being received and a place being allocated.

Mr. Horam

Courses are held at 50 of the Department's heavy goods vehicle testing stations in England. The delay between an application being received and the mechanic attending a course varies from three to eight weeks.

I regret that the detailed information asked for is not immediately available but I shall be writing to the hon. Member.
