HC Deb 06 December 1973 vol 865 c459W
37. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in the future interests of taxi drivers and of the public due to the irregularity of public transport, he will consider declaring taxis "public transport" and eligible for fuel for their unrestricted use.

Mr. Tom Boardman

No. I am considering whether there is anything I can or should do to help taxi drivers given the competing claims of other users.
