§ 20. Sir T. Beamish
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce amending legislation which would require a taxi driver who is not carrying a fare and who is not plying for hire, to have some easily seen and simple method of indicating this or simply to put out the For Hire lights.
§ Mr. Ennals:
The matter is within the competence of the Departmental Committee which is currently examining the London taxi cab and private hire services. My right hon. Friend proposes to wait for the report of this Committee before considering further legislation in this field.
