Personal Independence Payment: Mobility Criterion - Motion to Resolve (4 May 2016)

Baroness Grey-Thompson: ...of DLA and am eagerly awaiting the call for my PIP reassessment. It will be very interesting to experience it for myself. I do not have a Motability car, but in the early years of learning to drive I did. For me, it made a massive difference to what I was able to do. Because of my condition I can only drive an automatic car. The cost of hand controls is now around 1,000 and the cost...

Petition - Bowel Cancer Screening: Taxi Licensing Regulations (4 May 2016)

Andrew Jones: ...the system has failed in certain areas. We all know these cases, and they are positively shocking. The industry is seeing real change as new technology provides new ways for the public to engage taxis and private hire vehicles. Smartphone booking apps are now available for taxis and private hire vehicles, offering passengers easy access to services, more choice, faster pick-ups and options...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Prevention of child sexual exploitation and private hire vehicles (12 Apr 2016)

Lyn Brown: As my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East said, the new clause would place local authorities under a duty to consider child protection when they issue licences for drivers of taxis and private hire vehicles. We support it because we think it could lead to important safeguarding measures. Taxi drivers do a fantastic job up and down the country. I could not happily live my life without...

Julie Cooper: ...been developed in the community. For example, in my constituency, the local council has taken the lead in helping to make Burnley a dementia-friendly town and even offers free training to licensed taxi drivers.

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Mar 2016)

Cassandra Harrison: I wanted to raise an issue that is not currently in the Bill but is something I would like to be considered. It is in relation to taxi licensing.

[Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] — Southeastern Train Services (2 Mar 2016)

Claire Perry: ...ensure that those actions were carried out. I was disappointed to hear today some examples of partially-sighted passengers and others not given the care and support they needed. There was a plan to offer taxis to passengers. I will certainly ensure that the company receives those comments and responds to them. Dover sea wall was mentioned. Of course, major issues happen. I have been asked...

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill: Clause 23 - Parking at Birmingham Interchange: limit on deemed planning permission (1 Mar 2016)

Andy McDonald: ...will be a logical explanation for it. Be that as it may, the exclusions in subsection (4)(c)(i) of the clause exempt, “the provision of short-term parking for cars”, and, understandably, also the short-term parking for taxis and coaches. Subsection (4)(c)(ii) specifies an exemption for “parking on working sites”. The clause puts a limit on car parking spaces of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Wedding Cars: Regulations (15 Feb 2016)

Mark Durkan: ...a negative one — a joke. However, I do recall meeting the Member and representatives of the wedding car industry. A lot of exemptions in the legislation have been introduced for wedding car drivers. They are classed as class C taxis. Indeed, some of them are very classy when you have Rolls-Royces, Jaguars and what not. I do, though, agree that there are still concerns. For...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Taxis: Dead Miles (15 Feb 2016)

Mark Durkan: ...passed by the House in 2008, will soon be due to be reviewed. It ought to be reviewed as soon as possible once the regulations are in. Throughout the long development of the new legislation, the driving force was a desire to improve the experience of the taxi-using public here by bringing our taxi law up to date. You will recall that the original raft of subordinate legislation included...

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.

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...
