HC Deb 18 April 1929 vol 227 cc382-3

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, as the statistics in regard to street accidents are unfair to the drivers of taximeter-cabs, who have to pass a test, he will take steps to separate the records between these men and private drivers?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)

I have decided in consequence of representations I received last June that the Return for 1929 will be altered to show separately the number of street accidents attributed to cabs licensed to ply for hire. As I explained at the time, it was impossible at that stage to alter the basis on which the Return for 1928 was being prepared.
