HC Deb 20 July 1987 vol 120 c33W
32. Mr. Amess

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on his policy towards the safety of taxi and private-hire drivers from attack by passengers; and what measures are planned to increase their safety.

Mr. David Mitchell

I have no reason to believe that this is a serious problem but if my hon. Friend has any evidence to the contrary I shall be glad to hear from him.
