§ Mr. Alex Carlile
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what proposals he has to enforce registration and training upon minicabs in London; if he will set a national vocational qualification to achieve this; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Norris
I am currently considering the future structure of the minicab trade in London in the light of a working party report on the safety of users of taxis and minicabs in London which was presented to me in July. In 785W the course of my review, I have met with a range of organisations whose views I am taking fully into account. I hope to make an announcement shortly.
