HC Deb 13 December 1945 vol 417 cc768-9W
Flight-Lieutenant Challen

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider relaxing the regulations which compel taxicabs to be constructed without side windows, thus exposing the drivers to the inclemencies of the weather; and if he will permit the size of the window at the back of the cab to be increased, thus enabling the driver to obtain a better view of oncoming traffic.

Mr. Ede

There is nothing on the Conditions of Fitness for London cabs, as laid down by the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis, to prevent the adoption of the features which the hon. Member advocates.
