HC Deb 03 February 1986 vol 91 c9W
Mr. Bendall

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in his discussions with London Taxis International about the future of the CR6 taxi, the Company has indicated that it may wish to abandon this Project; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Morrison

As my hon. Friend will have seen reported in the press on 29 January, London Taxis International has said that it no longer proposes to produce a CR6 taxi based on the Range Rover design but aims to develop and introduce a new taxi based on the existing FX4. The company states that the new taxi will still have the ability to carry wheelchair-bound passengers. My Department is discussing the implications of this change of plan with LTI.
