HC Deb 27 April 1932 vol 265 cc381-2W

asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to prevent the practice of empty taximeter cabs moving slowly along the streets of London looking for fares?


Regulations prohibiting taximeter cabs from loitering are already in force in certain congested streets in the central area of London. A proposal to extend these regulations to other streets in London led to protests from the taxi-cab trade. I am anxious to give every consideration to the views of taxi-cab owners and drivers, and have asked the London Traffic Advisory Committee to review their recommendations in the light of these representations.
