Motion text

That this House notes with concern the announcement made by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport on 13 December 2011 on closure of the DVLA Office Network which, if implemented, will result in the closure of 39 local offices, 10 enforcement centres and three process units; further notes that these proposed closures will result in the loss of over 1,200 jobs at a time of growing national unemployment; further notes the detrimental effect these closures will have on local communities and the motor trade, which relies on the Local Office Network; and calls on the Government to reconsider the proposed closures and extend the public consultation for a further 12 weeks to allow sufficient participation from both members of the public and stakeholders alike.
