HC Deb 15 June 1927 vol 207 c1016W

asked the Home Secretary if he will consider including Victoria Street in the category of streets in which loitering taximeter-cabs are to to be prohibited?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have been asked to reply. The inclusion of Victoria Street in the list was carefully considered, but a decision to the contrary was reached, partly on the ground that it was desirable to limit the number of streets until practical experience had been gained of the working of the proposed Regulations, and, partly on account of the difficulty of providing adequate cab-rank facilities in the immediate neighbourhood.
