HC Deb 18 July 1984 vol 64 c232W
33. Mr. Craigen

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received regarding amendments to the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 in relation to taxi licensing.

Mr. Ancram

There have been a number of representations seeking amendment of section 21 of the Act, which deals with offences. Representations have also been made that the Act should be amended to permit licensing authorities to restrict the number of taxi licences which they may issue, and to allow the transfer of taxi licences.
