§ 34. Mr. Dickens
asked the Minister of Transport if he will carry out an inquiry into unauthorised deletions of records held on the computer at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing centre, Swansea.
§ Mr. Fowler
The security of computer records at the DVLC is regularly scrutinised both within my Department and by Government experts in computer frauds. A few isolated clerical attempts to make unauthorised changes to driver licence records have been detected in the past, but I understand that electronic tampering is not feasible. If my hon. Friend will let me have his evidence of criminal activity involving DVLC's computer records, I will investigate immediately.
