HC Deb 07 May 1981 vol 4 c132W
Mr. Bidwell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the consultative paper on the taxi trade is to be issued.

Mr. Raison

My right hon. Friend has put in hand a comprehensive review of the legislation governing taxis and private hire cars in England and Wales, with a view to producing a simpler and more up-to-date framework of control within which these trades can continue to provide their services.

As part of that review my right hon. Friend intends to issue a consultative document as the basis for discussion with the trades, the local authority associations and others directly concerned. He hopes to issue this paper shortly.
