DÁIL QUESTIONS WITH MINISTER FOR TRANSPORT ON MUTUAL RECOGNITION OF DISQUALIFIED DRIVERS

After the UK pulled out of the EU Convention on Driving Disqualifications this time last year, the Minister undertook to use the planned road traffic legislation, which he brought to the Cabinet on Tuesday, to bring about a regularisation of this country’s arrangements with the UK. It has taken the Government a full year to legislate for this issue, which is of great importance to the Border region, in particular. I understand most of that time was spent renegotiating our mutual recognition agreement with the UK.
