HC Deb 27 November 1978 vol 959 c92W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Transport (1) what is the average waiting list in Carlisle for persons taking their driving test; and what is the average in the United Kingdom as a whole;

(2) what is the length of time persons will be expected to wait after making application to take their test in Carlisle;

(3) how many persons are now waiting to take their driving test in Carlisle; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Horam:

The position on 10th November was as follows:

setting on more driving instructors in the Carlisle area in view of the waiting list.

Mr. Horam:

No. The waiting time in Carlisle is below the national average, and extra manpower has to be allocated to areas of greatest need.
