§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what application he has received for a fare increase in respect of London taxis; and when he will make a statement on the date of implementation of any increase.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The Home Office has received two applications, one from the London Joint Cab Trade Committee and one from the Cab Section of the T.G.W.U. It is currently discussing the applications with these representative bodies; but some major aspects of their proposals are mutually conflicting, and I cannot at present say when a conclusion will be reached.
