§ 3. Mr. Bartle Bull
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will consider increasing the allowance of petrol for taxi-cabs?
Major Lloyd George
The taxi-cab service is at present being reviewed by my Department, in consultation with the other Departments concerned. I will let my hon. Friend know when I have come to a conclusion.
§ Mr. Mathers
Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman also review the position of the private hire services, which in many respects have been in a worse position than the taxi-cabs in regard to supplies of petrol?
§ Commander Locker-Lampson
Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that at places like Waterloo people have waited from 10 till 12, two hours, without a single taxi coming, although outside 120 taxi-cabs have been seen to go by with their flags up?
