HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c185W
120. Mr. Molson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how his regulations provide for the payment for the hiring of a taximeter cab being apportioned when two or more parties share a taxi in the way that has become customary as a result of the shortage of conveyances in London.

Mr. Ede

I would refer the hon. Member to my answer to a Question by the hon. Member for Orpington (Sir W. Smithers) on 31st October, 1946, in which I pointed out that, in cases where a taxicab is shared, any apportionment of the fare to be paid to the driver is a matter for the passengers.
