My honourable friend the Minister of State for Transport (Dr Stephen Ladyman) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.
The Department for Transport has published a consultation paper seeking views on a package of measures which propose changes to the way in which the Driving Standards Agency conducts its business to deliver a better service and improve the quality of the assessments that it offers, and to ensure that the costs of the services provided are recovered in a fair and efficient manner. The proposals are grouped into three areas: service improvements, safety-related measures and general fee increases.
Copies of the consultation paper and regulatory impact assessments have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses. The documents are also available from the DSA website at www.dsa.gov.uk or by telephone on 0115 901 5921.
Those wishing to comment on the proposals have until 11 January 2007 to do so.
