Did you mean: tax driving?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: North/South Ministerial Council: Road Safety (12 May 2015)

Mark Durkan: ...from both jurisdictions on the delivery of road safety measures. The Council noted progress on the development of Ireland’s Road Traffic Bill 2015, which will include measures to address drug-driving and proposals to make a number of amendments to legislation regarding penalty points, written-off vehicles and mutual recognition of driver disqualifications between Ireland and the UK....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Cycling: Benefits to the Economy (23 March 2015)

Trevor Clarke: ...its targets for people walking and cycling to 40%, which is higher than that in the Netherlands. The Committee believes that objectives and targets are essential to provide clarity for the end vision, to drive the strategy and subsequent delivery plans forward and, very importantly, to make the Department accountable for the success of the strategy. We have made recommendations about...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Driving under Influence (19 March 2015)

Baroness Kramer: We have not sought funding from any of the Public Health Responsibility Deal partners but a number of them do already support our drink drive campaign in other ways. Our aim is to develop partnerships with brands who can provide in-context solutions or ‘nudges’ to help drivers avoid alcohol if they are driving, or to help those people who are drinking get home safely without...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Work and Pensions: Access to Work (12 March 2015)

Mark Harper: .... In this context, I can announce the removal of the currently suspended “30 hour guidance” from April 2015 which these wider reforms will render unnecessary. Over 30% of Access to Work spending is on taxis for customers with mobility problems. This is a transformative service for customers and I want to ensure that improvements to customer service, reliability, value...

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Clause 1 — Health and safety at work: general duty of self-employed persons (10 March 2015)

Andy Sawford: ...improve clause 1 although we still believe that it is unnecessary, ineffective and confusing. We have opposed the clause in all its guises from the very beginning. It is clear that this is an ideologically driven attack on health and safety and will have a negligible impact on the self-employed—those who the Government say they will help. We think that the clause could create...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Bus Lanes (5 March 2015)

Andrew Rosindell: I am sure that the Minister will be aware that a number of local authorities still do not allow ambulances to drive in bus lanes unless they are responding to an emergency. Does he agree that if an empty taxi returning to a taxi rank can drive in a bus lane, an ambulance returning to a hospital should be able to do so?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (4 February 2015)

Eric Pickles: ...is ineffective; there is no coherent senior leadership team and no permanent chief executive. There is a poorly directed tier of middle managers, some of whom do not demonstrate that they have the skills, drive and ability necessary to turn the organisation around. There is a history of poor performance and a tolerance of failure in children’s services. Strategies and action plans...

Deregulation Bill — Report (1st Day) (3 February 2015)

Baroness Thornton: ...by requiring the consent of the hirer before a booking can be passed on. They also propose allowing a licensing authority to exercise its powers over a licensed private hire vehicle or taxi operating in its area, even if the licence was issued by another licensing authority. We would have preferred the Government not to have proceeded at all with these clauses. There is still time for them...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Taxi Licensing Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2014: Prayer of Annulment (2 February 2015) See 4 other results from this debate

Colum Eastwood: Thanks. The Member points out that single tier might lead to more taxis. I do not know whether that is true, but the point that I made about you not being able to get a taxi is not based on there not being enough taxis. It is because not enough of them can stop and pick people up. The problem is empty taxis driving past people, not that there are not enough taxis.

North Sea Oil and Gas (Employment) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (20 January 2015)

Frank Doran: ...claims to support 450,000 jobs in the UK. These break down as follows: 36,000 employed directly by offshore operators; 200,000 in the supply chain, providing goods and services to the industry; 112,000 jobs in services such as hospitality, taxis, and so on; and 100,000 jobs in the export of goods and services. It is difficult to visit any foreign oil base or complex without hearing a...

Recall of MPs Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 January 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Finkelstein: My Lords, there has often been a wonderful use of the words “with due respect” in this Chamber on this Bill, in lieu of actually showing any. The suggestion that people who drive taxis or cut hair are not those who run the country will come as very sad news to the voters, particularly those who cut hair or drive taxis. To suggest that one cannot comment on the recall Bill without...

Natural Environment — Motion to Take Note (15 January 2015)

Baroness Ludford: ...frameworks—such as fuel duty, vehicle excise duty and so on—under which people have been encouraged to go for diesel. I do not own a car but sheepishly admit that, as a member of a car club called Zipcar, I find myself involuntarily driving cars with diesel engines. I do not drive frequently but when I do, the engines always seem to be diesel. Can my noble friend say what the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: North/South Ministerial Council: Health and Food Safety (13 January 2015)

Jim Wells: ...I hope to pursue, that we make available that cath lab to patients from Donegal, where between 130 and 150 people a year have cardiac arrests. It does not seem to make much sense that they almost drive past the front door of Altnagelvin on their way to Dublin. When I asked the authorities up there recently what happens to those patients, they told me that some of them die. It is very sad...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Regional Development: York Street Interchange (9 December 2014)

Chris Lyttle: I imagine that the Minister will agree that free-flowing bus lanes will be vital to the success of transport in Belfast city centre. He will also be aware that a potential consequence of the Taxis Act would be that all taxis will be permitted to drive in bus lanes as of June 2015. What regulation of bus lane use by taxis will he introduce?

Opposition Day: Government Policies (Wales) (26 November 2014)

Mark Williams: ...hon. Gentleman will forgive me, I will not give way because I want to crack on in the little time I have. I want to talk about fuel duty as it affects drivers. My constituents have no choice about driving their cars. Some of them live in Lampeter and work in Aberystwyth —a 60-mile round journey every day. They do not have the luxury of public transport and taxis are unaffordable. I...

Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court (24 November 2014)

Thomas Docherty: Does the Minister however accept that that can happen in other professions? For example, a lorry or taxi driver who receives a driving-related conviction can lose their job, even though they are not disqualified from driving, because committing a driving offence is incompatible with being a professional driver. I am sure that the whole House would agree that the misuse of public...

Equality Act 2010 (Amendment) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (21 November 2014)

Baroness Brinton: ...check that the night porter would have access to the ramp. I was assured that he would, that the hotel was fully accessible and had a proper disabled bedroom and wet room. It sounded good. I arrived in the taxi, which sped off. As the night porter came out, it was immediately apparent that the step, which was probably just under 12 inches high, was completely unsuitable. The ramp that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Drivers: Provisional Licence (11 November 2014)

Mark Durkan: ...for his question. The point that Lord Morrow makes is one that has been made before and one that would warrant further exploration, in my opinion. When we talk about road safety, it is not just about drivers and the fitness of people to drive. Look at how we assess fitness of vehicles on the road and their roadworthiness. Vehicles have to be tested after four years and every year...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Local Bus Services (5 November 2014)

Gordon Marsden: ...the Competition Commission has estimated that the broken market is costing taxpayers up to 300 million a year. Rather than different private companies, or even Whitehall, taking decisions about public transport, our plans would put local areas in the driving seat. Currently, no one is able to provide consistent information to passengers on their bus services or to monitor the...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Second Reading (4 November 2014)

Earl Attlee: ...incorrectly advised to do nothing. This is despite the fact that there are very few, if any, successful negligence actions in respect of emergency assistance, as your Lordships well know. Only this morning my taxi driver explained to me that, on his statutory training course, he was advised that he should use his first aid kit only on himself, and not on a member of the general public or...
