HC Deb 22 June 1994 vol 245 c238W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to privatise the Driving Standards Authority's driver and rider testing functions.

Mr. Key

I refer the hon. Member to the answer that I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Dartford (Mr. Dunn) on 27 May 1993 at columns683–84 in which I announced that, following the review of the Driving Standards Agency's framework document, I had decided that these functions should continue to be conducted by an executive agency of the Department of Transport. The position will be reviewed in three to four years time.
