§ 82. Wing Commander Bullus
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has made an investigation in connection with his Department's driving tests in Leeds.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
Yes. I have had an inquiry made on the spot by a senior officer of my Department, together with the Chief Driving Examiner, and find there is no evidence whatsoever to support these allegations. The Rev. Kenneth Fawcett, the Vicar of St. Mary's, Leeds, whose letter was mentioned by the hon. Member for Leeds, West (Mr. Pannell), when confronted with the gravity of his assertions unreservedly withdrew any suggestion of a "racket" and confined his complaint to his own individual test. I am glad to take this opportunity of expressing my complete confidence in the integrity of the Ministry's staff of driving examiners.
