Rural Communities: Taxis

Volume 712: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they carried out research into the impact of the introduction of taxi metering on the provision of service to rural communities. [HL5035]

The Government have not carried out research into the compulsory use of taximeters in rural areas. Responsibility for taxi licensing—including any decision on whether taximeters should be mandatory—rests with local licensing authorities.
