Taxis: Licensing

Volume 481: debated on Thursday 23 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what (a) time period and (b) jurisdictions are covered by Criminal Records Bureau checks on (i) British and (ii) foreign national applicants for taxi licences. (229312)

Communities and Local Government has no responsibility for these matters. The licensing of taxis is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport. The Criminal Records Bureau is an Executive agency of the Home Office.
