asked the Minister of Transport how many full time driving test examiners are now employed in Lanarkshire; how many part time examiners are now employed; and how they are recruited.

The number of full time driving examiners in post in Lanarkshire is 27. No part time examiners are employed.Driving and traffic examiners are recruited through open competitions which are conducted by the Civil Service Commissioners. Competitions are advertised in the national press. Exceptionally, in 1960, a number of temporary examiners were recruited directly by my Department through the Ministry of Labour.
