To ask the Minister of the Environment, pursuant to AQW 27716/11-15, to provide a copy of the relevant training module in respect of Driver and Vehicle Agency enforcement staff carrying out duties to detect illegal activities of taxi operators.

The accredited `Advanced Certificate in Investigative Practice` is designed to give staff, with an investigative role, the necessary knowledge and skills to competently carrying out their duties.
The certificate is modular based and the modules entitled `Law, Evidence, Procedure and Best Practice` and `Advanced Statement/Report writing` provide formal training to enforcement officers in gathering and submitting evidence to support investigations.
A copy of the brochure detailing the ‘Advanced Certificate in Investigative Practice’ has been placed in the Assembly Library.
