asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish a list in the Official Report of fares permitted to be charged by taxis in each of the different licensing areas in the United Kingdom, giving the date upon which such charges were sanctioned in each case, and distinguishing between the initial mileage charge for each fare and the subsequent mileage charge.
It would involve disproportionate expense to prepare and publish a comprehensive list of taxi fare scales for all licensing areas in England and Wales. If the hon. Member wishes to know the scale in some particular districts I shall be glad to provide this information.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what proposals he has to revise the law governing the licensing of taxis and hire cars.
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on 14th April to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Carlisle (Mr. Lewis).—[Vol. 890, c. 25.]
