Deputy Broughan: I support the Minister’s amendment to the 1994 Act. I have been asking the Minister for a long time to address consolidation of road traffic legislation. On its website, the Law Reform Commission appends all the changes that have been made to the Act since 1994, through the Bills passed since then. As that is the case, is it not possible for the Minister to ask the Law Reform Commission to make a full consolidation instead of having the House consider road traffic Bills almost annually? We could have all road traffic Acts in one convenient consolidated Bill, as was done, for example, with the Companies Act 2014 and other legislation.
Deputy Fitzmaurice made the reasonable point that several thousand drivers continue to drive on repeat learner permits. They are, however, entitled to a speedy test. The Minister should address that in the Bill.
