§ Captain WARING
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the increased safety and amenity of the streets due to the absence of taximeter motor cabs owing to 1820 the strike, he can see his way in future to limit the licences issued in order to restrict the number plying for hire?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
The question of limiting the number of motor cabs involves many important considerations. The Departmental Committee which recently considered the matter refused to recommend limitation, and as at present advised, I do not propose to take any steps in that direction.
