§ 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.
