HC Deb 24 October 1972 vol 843 c286W
Mr. Tugendhat

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will investigate the extent in central London of agreements reached between certain hotels and the taxi trade, whereby taxis provide preferential service to the hotels in return for higher prices, with a view to taking steps to end this practice.

Mr. Lane

I understand that there was a short-lived arrangement between one hotel and a section of the taxi trade, and that it was ended by mutual agreement.
