HC Deb 18 March 1985 vol 75 c370W
26. Mr. John Mark Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the safety record of the Ministry of Transport testing and garage industry.

Mrs. Chalker

Safety in MOT testing stations is the responsibility of the operators under the surveillance of the Health and Safety Executive or the local authority. It is of course influenced by the procedures and equipment prescribed by the Department which aim to follow good modern practice.
