HC Deb 14 February 1964 vol 689 cc117-8W
Mr. Speir

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further proposals, following his authorisation of an increase in fares, he has for improving London's taxi service.

Mr. Woodhouse

My right hon. Friend's responsibility for London's taxi service is confined to the administration of the statutory controls imposed in the public interest relating to fares, the construction of vehicles and the character and competence of drivers. Following his authorisation of an increase it fares, he is taking up with the trade the question of revising the law relating to the six mile limit.
