At breakneck speed this morning my Driving Instructors Bill passed its committee stage.
In forty-five minutes we covered all seven clauses, two schedules and twenty six government amendments.
Michael Connarty, Greg Knight and Robert Goodwill asked some very valid questions about dealing with malicious complaints, how serious the case would need to be before it required suspension and re-entry onto the register.
The Bill received unanimous support. It's a good example of cross party cooperation.
The Bill now goes for Report and Third Reading on Friday 26th June.
