§ Sir N. Cooper-Key
asked the Prime Minister whether he will examine the respective responsibilities of the Home Office and the Ministry of Transport with the view of transferring policy governing the Metropolitan taxicab industry to the latter Department.
§ The Prime Minister
This has been examined before and, although the balance of argument was fine, the decision was to leave Departmental responsibilities unchanged. The problem is, however, now being looked at afresh and I will let the House know in due course of any conclusions reached.
