HC Deb 30 June 1938 vol 337 c2107
33. Mr. Crowder

asked the Home Secretary whether, when setting up the committee which is to investigate the question of competition between taximeter-cabs and private motor-car hire firms, he will arrange that a separate report shall be issued with regard to the London area?

Sir S. Hoare

I will consider my hon. Friend's suggestion, and I hope to be in a position to make a full statement on Monday next.

Mr. H. Morrison

Will the right hon. Gentleman keep in mind that this is a rapidly growing problem in London and that a decision and action on it are urgently desirable?

Sir S. Hoare

I am well aware of the urgency of the problem and to the particular urgency in London, and it is on this account that I hope to deal with it in my answer next week.
