HC Deb 06 March 1969 vol 779 c146W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will have consultations with the London taxi trade, with a view to taking steps to stagger shift change-overs, so that a continuous service is available during the rush hours.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

This is a matter for negotiation between the taxicab proprietors and the drivers concerned, and my right hon. Friend has no authority to intervene. I understand that the Committee on the London taxicab trade are considering ways of improving the taxicab service in peak hours.
