§ 33. Sir PARK GOFF
asked the Home Secretary whether he can see his way to have the dial on the taxi-meter in taxi-cabs altered so as to indicate the new fares; and whether he will issue instructions to all drivers to have their taximeters properly illuminated at night and see that this same is adequately carried out?
§ Sir J. BAIRD
There are many difficulties, owing to shortage of skilled labour, spare parts, etc., in the way of enforcing a general alteration of taxi-meters. There is a Regulation requiring the taxi-meters to be properly illuminated, and the police have instructions to see that it is obeyed.
§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the adolescent section of the community is strongly opposed to any further illumination of taxis at night?
