Driving instructors bill sails through third reading

My bill to introduce the power to suspend driving instructors has sailed through its third reading today.

The bill ensures that learner drivers are protected from those convicted of sexual offences but have not yet been removed from the register of approved driving instructors.

The bill will now be guided by my old boss Lord Paul Tyler through the House of Lords before it hopefully receives Royal Assent.

A good day's work.

  1. This is fabulous news - the culmination of years of hard work on your part.

    But is sailing through the right phrase? Or is it just me having a weird moment?
