§ Mr. Waller
asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many heavy goods vehicle driving tests have been cancelled or postponed since 1 January at the Steeton heavy goods vehicle driving test centre (a) because no examiner was available or (b) because of weather conditions; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Since 1 January, 12 heavy goods vehicle driving test appointments at the Steeton centre have been cancelled because of weather conditions, and eight by candidates themselves. Seven have been cancelled because no examiner was available. Over the same period four HGV test periods were not taken up.
