asked the Minister of Transport if he will give details of driving tests carried out at Colchester since 30th June, 1948, showing the number of persons tested, the number passed on the first test and the number failed once, twice and more than twice, respectively.

I regret that the information is not available. Statistics of driving tests are based on traffic areas and not on separate localities, and the expenditure of time and labour on preparing more detailed figures from the driving examiners' daily journals would not provide a complete answer, and would not in my opinion, be justified.
