Closure Of Local Driving Test Centres

EDM number 1294 in 2010-12, proposed by Mike Weir on 18/01/2011.
Categorised under the topic of Roads.

That this House notes with concern the programme of closures of local driving test centres, including Arbroath and Forfar in Angus constituency; further notes that there have been 22 such closures in the last two years and that many such closures are being undertaken without any consultation with those directly affected or the local community; believes such closures are against the Government's own announced policy of localism; and calls on the Department for Transport to suspend immediately any such closures and toinstruct the Driving Standards Agency that no closures may be undertaken without a full public consultation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
