asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce a system of graduated driving licences which would have regard to the speed and power of the vehicle.

My hon. Friend's proposal would require legislation, but I am keeping it under review.

Is my right hon. Friend aware that many people will hope very much that he will give this very sensible idea clue and careful consideration, particularly as it originated in a supplementary answer which he gave to me?

I am certainly attracted by the idea. I was very disappointed when I found that there was no statutory power for me to do anything about it.
