HC Deb 05 July 1869 vol 197 c1169

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether some means might not be taken to put down the prevalent practice of Cabs plying for fares off the regular stand?


, in reply, said, it would be impossible to take any steps against "crawling cabs" till a larger number of stands were provided; for at present there was only room on the stands for about 2,000 vehicles; Colonel Henderson was, however, making a careful survey of the metropolis, with a view to supply the defect.
