asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware of the discontent among taxi-drivers, and confusion to the travelling public, owing to the fact that the taxi-meters have not yet been altered to show the increased charges imposed last June; and if he will take steps to have the necessary alteration of meters put into effect at the earliest possible date.

I am aware that taxi-drivers would like their meters adjusted to show the increased fares but I do not think that the time has come to insist on this being done. Meanwhile consideration is being given to affixing a label to the meter and the fare table drawing attention to the notice of increase of fares.
