HC Deb 10 July 1985 vol 82 c443W
Mr. Brandon-Bravo

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what action he is taking to extend the recognition of driving licences to further countries outside the European Community.

Mr. Michael Spicer

Representative organisations are being invited to give their views on a proposal that Austria and Japan should be added to the list of countries whose licences are exchangeable for British ordinary licences. The proposed order under the Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Act 1983 would come into effect on 1 November 1985.
