§ Mr. Win Griffiths
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will propose legislation to enable local authorities to tender for carrying out MOT inspections of vehicles owned by other organisations; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
No. Existing legislation provides for MOT examinations to be carried out by inspectors appointed by any council designated by the Secretary of State for Transport. There is no restriction on the ownership of the vehicles which may be tested by such councils.
