HC Deb 15 December 1980 vol 996 c66W
Mr. Pawsey

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will withdraw the present national driving licence and adopt the procedure whereby the licence is renewed every third year and the holder's photograph is renewed every six years, as used in Northern Ireland.

Mr. Fowler

No. as this would be more expensive to run than the present system and would, I believe, be inconvenient to the public.
