§ 10. Sir Fergus Montgomery
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what response he has received to his draft conditions for authorisation of Ministry of Transport testing stations, issued in May 1985.
§ Mrs. Chalker
I recognise that the revised conditions published last May would have caused major difficulties for some existing testers. My right hon. Friend and I therefore announced new conditions on October 4, which I am confident will largely cut out the need for costly alterations to test bays and buildings for existing businesses. This has been widely welcomed.
