Ms Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many(a) traffic examiners and (b) vehicle examiners were in post in each of the last 10 years broken down by whether they were stationed at (i) vehicle testing stations or (ii) other offices. [27867]

Mr. Norris

This is an operational matter for the Vehicle Inspectorate agency.

I have asked the chief executive to write to the hon. Member.

Letter from R. Oliver to Ms Joan Walley, dated 26 June 1995: The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your questions on how many traffic vehicle examiners were in post for the last 10 years and their location. I provided details of numbers in a previous reply (ref PQ 523/94/95 and my letter of 25 January 1995). Information for the last 10 years and where staff were located can only be provided at disproportionate cost. I can provide you with an up to date figure on numbers employed at the end of May 1995. There were a total of 365 vehicle examiners and 160 traffic examiners. We are currently recruiting around 25 additional traffic examiners and around 35 vehicle examiners to increase complement, cover anticipated retirements and substantially fill current temporary posts.
