Written Answers — Department for Transport: Taxis: Licensing (4 Feb 2016)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: The Government is responsible for setting the regulatory structure within which local licensing authorities in England and Wales license taxi drivers. Regulation of taxi drivers in Scotland and Northern Ireland is devolved to the Scottish Government and Northern Irish Assembly respectively. Local licensing authorities in England and Wales have a duty to ensure that any person to whom they...

Immigration Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (1 Feb 2016)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...might have in mind, or, indeed, have regard to the amendments that have already taken place. Again, at a general level, I note that the Bill deals with a whole series of issues: labour market reform, housing, driving and driving licences, illegal working, the appeals process, immigration and bail. Only one or two aspects of that are immediately impacted by the issue that we are addressing...

Women: Businesses — Motion to Take Note (21 Jan 2016)

Lord Borwick: ...that any country can engage in. Wasting resources on this scale means less help for those who cannot work. I am glad that we have changed. When I ran Manganese Bronze, the company which manufactured London black taxis, I used to have many conversations with drivers about all sorts of issues. As technology developed, these conversations increasingly moved online. Once, I engaged perhaps six...

Immigration Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (20 Jan 2016)

Lord Bates: ...of the amendments and I understand them better now that the noble Baroness has spoken to them. At the same time, I should like to provide some reassurances on the points she has made, in respect of taxi and private hire licence holders who have limited leave to be in the UK, that any licence granted must be for the full duration of the leave period. This fails to recognise that taxi and...

Storm Eva: Local Authority Support (20 Jan 2016)

Holly Lynch: ...people from harm’s way. A local authority cabinet member told me this week that she had taken car keys from a council officer who had worked for almost four days straight with barely any sleep and called him a taxi, because she was worried that he was too exhausted to drive himself home. That is not an exceptional case. Council officers and staff came in to work over the Christmas...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Quality (17 Dec 2015)

Elizabeth Truss: ...at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/air-quality-plan-f or-nitrogen-dioxide-no2-in-uk-2015 Under this Plan, by 2020 the most polluting diesel vehicles - old polluting buses, coaches, taxis and lorries - will be discouraged from entering the centres of Birmingham, Leeds, Southampton, Nottingham and Derby. Newer vehicles that meet the latest emission standards, and private cars, will...

Scottish Parliament: Smoking Prohibition (Children in Motor Vehicles) (Scotland) Bill (17 Dec 2015)

Jackson Carlaw: ...will make a difference to everyone and will be worth while. I would like to think that social attitudes have changed to the extent that the legislation would not be necessary. Interestingly, I was coming into Parliament in a taxi last week and the taxi driver said to me that he had heard about the issue on the radio and thought that he would conduct a wee experiment. He spent the morning...

[Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] — Community Transport (16 Dec 2015)

Ian Blackford: ...area was carried out by Robert Gordon University. A pilot scheme was established and provided a capped sum of 3,000 to the Glenelg community for the scheme to run for 12 months. It procured a local taxi service for a fixed fee and sold tickets to travellers for 3 with the balance being provided to the taxi through the community group. It was a low-cost scheme that brought...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (14 Dec 2015)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...fairly steady, the increase seems attributable to a decline in the off-flow rate, rather than a great flood of entrepreneurial activity. Although it is mainly men who are self-employed, the most common roles being in construction, taxi driving and management consultancy, the number of women in self-employment is increasing at a faster rate than for men. According to the ONS, the average...

Consumer Protection (Standards of Fire Resistance of Children’s Fancy Dress and Play Costumes Etc): Clause 34 — Appeals within the United Kingdom: certification of human rights claims (1 Dec 2015)

Theresa May: ...society—but, as I have said before, when net migration is too high, and the pace of change too fast, it puts pressure on schools, hospitals, accommodation, transport and social services, and it can drive down wages for people on low incomes. That is not fair on the British public and it is not fair on those who come here legitimately and play by the rules. So since 2010 the...

Low Emission Zones (25 Nov 2015)

Rory Stewart: ...things apart from vehicles, including non-road mobile machinery, such as construction machinery, and domestic boilers. The sources extend right across the spectrum of vehicles, including buses, taxis, heavy goods vehicles, light goods vehicles and cars. The hon. Member for Blaenau Gwent (Nick Smith), the shadow Minister, also focused on science and modelling. The modelling that we...

House of Lords (Parliamentary Standards Etc) Bill: New Clause 24 — National framework for devolution of fiscal powers (17 Nov 2015)

David Burrowes: ...;that an individual who has been convicted of such a serious offence that they have been imprisoned for more than three months can still remain a councillor. This issue has particular relevance in Enfield. In my constituency, Councillor Nesimi Erbil was convicted of two offences of fraud under the Fraud Act 2006. On 28 August 2014, he used a fake taxi badge, claiming that it applied to an...

Hospital Parking Charges (Exemption for Carers) Bill (30 Oct 2015)

Khalid Mahmood: ...do not run late, so somebody receiving dialysis in the evening may not be able to manage and carers may not be able to get a bus at that time. If no buses are running they will have to pay for a taxi, which is a lot more expensive. People use their own cars because of the equipment they might sometimes need to carry or if they have to drive their children. Some carers bring their children...

Taxi and Private Car Hire Market — Question for Short Debate (20 Oct 2015)

Lord Crickhowell: ...cab. I therefore have nothing against competition. However, there are real issues, a number of which have been emphasised today. There is a flood of drivers coming in. We know very little about the driving ability of many of them, and I think that that is a matter of concern and interest. There are real issues about insurance—insurance not just of vehicles but the adequacy of...

Apprenticeships — Motion to Take Note (15 Oct 2015)

Lord Haskel: ...and software, independent contractors are available, for instance, through firms such as Upwork which has 20,000 people on its list. Amazon has already prepared a platform for this which you can go on to today, so it is not just driving taxis or delivering parcels that is part of the IT economy. If we fail to adapt our apprenticeship systems to this new way of working, as we failed to...

Bills Presented: Immigration Bill (13 Oct 2015)

Graham Jones: ...well. In eight of the last nine months, unemployment in my constituency has risen, yet we are being asked to take more low-skilled workers. It is obvious what the net impact will be. Let us take the example of taxi drivers. Driving a taxi is the second largest form of employment in the borough of Hyndburn. There are more than 600 taxi drivers in the borough, and probably another 150 if I...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution: Greater London (18 Sep 2015)

Rory Stewart: ...of London is responsible for air quality standards in London. He has set up a Low Emission Zone and has announced the introduction of an Ultra-Low Emission Zone Scheme to ensure that all vehicles driving in the centre of London will be zero or low emission by 2020. A plan to deliver cleaner taxis across London has also been announced to help support London taxi driver’s transition to...

Dangerous Driving Penalties — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (17 Sep 2015)

Douglas Chapman: ...the House today involved not just one family, but two. The case was described by the hon. Member for Kingswood (Chris Skidmore) as well. The loss of two lives just doubles the pain that families face. Drinking and driving lies at the core of many deaths on our roads. In summing up the debate, I want to focus some of my comments on that aspect. In Scotland last December, the blood alcohol...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Courts and Tribunal Services (England and Wales) (17 Sep 2015)

Andrew Bingham: .... Does a magistrate who is living and serving in High Peak really want to be going over to Chesterfield? Those who know the area will be aware that it gets a touch cold in the winter and we have quite a bit of snow, and people who try to drive from High Peak to Chesterfield in February sometimes do not have the best of chances. This move will discourage people from High Peak from becoming...

[Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] — London Black Cabs (15 Sep 2015)

Richard Burden: ...made the point, quite correctly, that we have a choice. We can look towards a future based on a race to the bottom, with all that that implies, or we can look to generalise the best standards for drivers and for passengers. I have referred to black cabs, but rising to the challenge of dealing with these changes is also important for the private hire industry. Properly regulated private...
