§ Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many people have been prosecuted in the last five years, and in the last year, for unlawfully giving driving lessons for money when not licensed to do so.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
I have been asked to reply.
Comparable figures for prosecutions brought in England and Wales for offences in which a person other than an approved driving instructor gave driving instructions for payment are available only from 1973 and are to be found in the publications "Offences Relating to Motor 82W Vehicles" for 1973 to 1976. Figures for 1977 are not yet available.
