HC Deb 20 May 1965 vol 712 cc256-7W
27. Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress he has made with the consultations in his effort to extend the present London taxi meter limit; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. George Thomas

After considering the views expressed to him by all sections of the London cab trade, my right hon. and learned Friend has informed them of his conclusion that some revision of the six-mile limit is needed, certainly in terms of controlled fares, and has invited their co-operation in working out the details. Consultations have been renewed on this basis.
