HC Deb 26 March 1993 vol 221 c731W
Mr. Betts

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he will make a statement about the future of the Handsworth driving test centre in Sheffield.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

[holding answer 23 March 1993]: Following discussions with the relevant landlords, the Driving Standards Agency's preferred option for reducing its capacity in the Sheffield area is to retain the driving test centre at Handsworth and to close the centre at Manor Top. The agency will now consult the Members of Parliament for the constituencies affected and representatives of approved driving instructors.
