asked the Minister of Transport if he will reduce the fee for a short-term driving licence of the kind issued to persons using a heart pacemaker to a level substantially below that of the charge for a driving licence for an indefinite period.

The £5fee applies to all full licences. The fee is therefore payable when a short-term licence is issued but subsequent renewals of such licences are free. I do not think therefore that a change is needed.
