HC Deb 02 December 1974 vol 882 c359W
Mr. Neubert

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied with the situation whereby London (Gatwick) Airport is outside the Metropolitan Police District, in particular in connection with the operation of licensed London taxis.

Dr. Summerskill

Legislation would be needed to introduce control over taxi journeys and fares from London to Gatwick and we do not believe that there is a sufficient case for it at present.
