HC Deb 07 December 1950 vol 482 c516
26. Sir T. Moore

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement as to the result of his recent decision to raise the fares for taxicabs in the London area.

Mr. Ede

I have not sufficient information to enable me to make any statement on this matter.

Sir T. Moore

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I have information on the subject? Will he confirm or deny that tips have been reduced to balance the increased charges?

Mr. Ede

The hon. and gallant Gentleman represents a Scottish constituency, and I should have thought he would be more expert in the matter than I am.
