An email asked staff at the driving licence HQ in Swansea, South Wales, to reply “ASAP”.

The request was part of a “points-based” system. 

Staff score a point for higher Covid risk factors — such as being overweight — being male, pregnant or from an ethnic minority background. 

Those who score four or more and can’t work from home can be given “special paid leave”.

Unions called the request “demeaning”.

A DVLA spokesman said: “Our focus is on the safety of our staff.”
