HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 c479W
Miss Lestor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he intends to take to deal with the unsatisfactory behaviour of a minority of taxi drivers at London Heathrow Airport, details of which have been forwarded to him.

Mr. Lane

My right hon. Friend's predecessor made an Order under Section 2 of the London Cab Act, 1968, directing, with effect from Monday, 7th August, that the length of journey which a taxi driver hired at Heathrow is obliged to undertake to a destination within the Metropolitan Police District should be increased from six to 20 miles. My noble Friend the Minister of State is writing to the hon. Member about the other points raised in her letter.
