asked the Minister of Transport if he will make regulations to ensure that persons over 60 years of age who have never passed a driving test, but who still possess a valid driving licence, should now pass a test on reapplication for renewal of licence.

This would require legislation. As all such licence holders have had many years in which to gain driving experience, to force them all to undergo tests would, in my opinion, be a wasteful use of the considerable additional testing capacity which might be required.
