Written Answers. - Driving Tests.

Michael Creed

Question:

142 Mr. Creed asked the Minister for the Environment and Local Government the position regarding the recruitment of additional driving inspectors to reduce the waiting list for driving tests. [22275/98]

I refer the Deputy to my reply to Question No. 329 of 13 October 1998 on this matter.

It is expected that the additional testers, both contract and permanent, will take up duty shortly.
