Regina v. Reading Borough Council, ex parte Egan, steps will now be taken to withdraw or amend Department of Transport Circular 3/85.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Transport
(Lord Brabazon of Tara)

It is our intention to issue a circular in the near future withdrawing the advice, given in Circular 3/85, that a council which was unsure of the state of demand in its area could grant a proportion of applications for new taxi licences, deferring consideration of the remainder until the effects of granting the first tranche could be assessed.
