London’S Licensed Taxi Trade (15 Jul 2015)

Robert Goodwill: ...—and let us not go into the issue of bicycle rickshaws. London’s tax service is recognised as one of the best in the world, with high vehicle standards, including disabled access and skilled drivers. By learning the world-famous “knowledge” of London, London taxi drivers earn the unique right to ply for hire on the streets of the capital. Private hire vehicles offer...

Written Answers — Home Office: Home Office: Travel (13 Jul 2015)

Karen Bradley: There is no entitlement for civil servants or special advisers to the use of (i) a car with a dedicated driver, (ii) a car from the government car pool (iii) a taxi ordered through a departmental account. However where there is business justification, pool vehicles can be driven by any employee of the Home Office holding the appropriate driving licence and approved by their line manager or...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill: Consideration Stage (29 Jun 2015)

Mark Durkan: ..., and she reiterated the rationale behind its support for my amendments and the removal of clause 3. Mrs Cameron elaborated on evidence heard by the Committee and welcomed changes to the drink-drive limit. In an intervention, Mr McCrea raised the issue of self-testing. I am aware of the availability of such products, but I think that we would all like to get to a point at which, where...

School Transport — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (25 Jun 2015)

Steve McCabe: ...are sometimes forced to travel great distances to school. I know that the Minister is fond of reading the Daily Mail; in March, it reported on a mother from south London who complained that she was forced to drive her son 25 miles to his current school because she cannot obtain a place at the local school, which is down the road and round the corner. We hear stories repeatedly about...

Opposition Day: 3rd Alloted day — A&E Services (24 Jun 2015)

Rupa Huq: ...all Members of the House will join me in that. Who was it who said, “I think of the emergency nurse practitioner in Surrey, still in his overalls, telling me that closing A&E means an hour long drive to hospital for some people, and potentially lives lost”? Does anyone know? It was the right hon. Member for Witney (Mr Cameron) in 2007. In my constituency, that possibility...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (23 Jun 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...questions they are required by the law to ask and are happy to facilitate the transfer of the proceeds of the illicit trade into the licit economy. It is ubiquitous across the country. At the other end of the scale, nail bars, taxi firms, car washes and, I am told, even childcare organisations are local small businesses that are used to facilitate the laundering of the proceeds of the...

Alternative Transport Fuels (17 Jun 2015)

Andrew Jones: ...electric vehicles, although I must mention that I will be making my debut behind the wheel of an electric vehicle tomorrow morning, as Nissan is lending the Department a Leaf. I am looking forward to driving it. The wider action that we have taken includes making £30 million available so that bus operators and local authorities across England and Wales can bid for low emission buses...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: DRD Budget Management (9 Jun 2015)

Cathal Ó hOisín: .... All that time, however, we are still squandering money on a raft of other scenarios. In tomorrow's Committee meeting, we will look at a how a public transport company — namely, Translink — spends £800,000 a year on private-hire taxis and company vehicles. I am not sure whether that can be justified, particularly given the community transport situation. A number of...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Air Pollution (London) (9 Jun 2015)

Mark Field: ...position as a global leader. More than 1 million people come to work in my constituency alone every day and the congestion this causes inevitably has a major impact on local air quality. The 10-year age limit on taxis from 2020 should be welcomed, as these vehicles are responsible for a relatively large proportion of emissions in central London. It is essential that a taxi scrappage scheme...

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 Mar 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 Mar 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 Mar 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 Mar 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 Mar 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 Feb 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 Feb 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 Feb 2015)

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 Jan 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 Jan 2015)

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...
