Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

The Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, who hold and administer the national driver file, has advised me that the number of provisional licence holders was 367,807 as at 31 December 2003. I have asked that Department to provide a breakdown of this figure into the various categories as the Deputy has requested. I will forward the information to the Deputy as soon as it is available.
