HC Deb 18 May 1950 vol 475 c167W
39. Sir T. Moore

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what interval he proposes to leave between the date of his decision on the application made to him last year for authority to increase London taxi-cab fares and the date for the coming into operation of such increase as he may authorise; and if he will consider the best method of notifying taxi-cab passengers of the fares to be charged, having regard to the time required for the alteration of taxi-meters.

Mr. Ede

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given to the hon. and gallant Member for Wembley, North (Wing-Commander Bullus) on 11th May. I hope to announce my decision and its practical application with the minimum of delay.
