Taxi Update

 

Many of you will know that I'm working hard to try to get a better deal for our iconic black taxis, raising the issues that affect them in Parliament.

The Department for Transport is delayed in it's publication of a 'task and finish group' report on Taxis and Private Hire. I've been pressing ministers to get this report published, because it will give us a clearer idea of the issues facing the trade and where the government might be willing to act.

The numbers in my question below represent the different times this report has been used in answer to questions by MPs and Lords, often with the promise of 'soon'.

We now know ministers will receive the report next month, but I am just as frustrated as I'm sure you will be that they have said it will be published in 'due course'!

I'll continue to keep an eye on this, and other developments. It's about time the government made this report public.
