HC Deb 15 April 1986 vol 95 c333W
Mr. Amess

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report from chief constables on the practice of police forces with regard to checks as to whether or not those people issued with hackney carriage licences have a criminal record and on the passing of such information to licensing authorities.

Mr. Giles Shaw

No. Guidance to the police on the disclosure of criminal records in exceptional cases does not provide for disclosure for this purpose.
