§ Mr. Allason
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he plans to make driving licences issued in the Republic of South Africa directly exchangeable for licences issued by the Drivers and Vehicle Licensing Agency. 
§ Mr. Norris
We shall shortly be consulting on proposed changes in the law which would enable most South African driving licences to be exchanged for British ones. Subject to a satisfactory outcome, we expect these changes to come into force later this year.
