HC Deb 05 November 1980 vol 991 cc594-5W
37. Mr. Ewing

asked the Minister of Transport if he will reconsider his decision to close the Stirling vehicle licensing office on 21 February 1981.

Mr. Fowler

The 23 post offices in the area can now handle virtually all relicensing work. This provides a much more local and convenient service for the general public and has enabled us at the same time to make savings in administration. I am afraid, therefore. I cannot reconsider the decision to close this office.
