HC Deb 10 March 1988 vol 129 cc292-3W
Mr. Burns

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if his Department proposes to seek to amend the requirements for a public service vehicle licence for vehicles so as to include those carrying 11 or more people; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

I have no plans to amend the current requirement that anyone who operates a vehicle with more than eight passenger seats has to comply with the licensing requirements for public service vehicles unless they are specifically exempted.
