HC Deb 02 April 1998 vol 309 c595W
Mr. Trimble

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if Northern Ireland will be included within the remit of his Department's research project into how driving instructors are(a) trained and (b) tested. [36813]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The operation of the register of Approved Driving Instructors in Northern Ireland has not been included in terms of the research project we have recently commissioned. However, the Driver and Vehicle Testing Agency will, I understand, look closely at whether the study's findings could be applied in Northern Ireland. The research project will be completed in 2000.
