As we have been communicating with the right hon. Gentleman's Department on this issue for seven years, will he speed up a decision about it? Does he think that when we resume in November after the Recess he will be able to give a reply to these Questions?
The undertaking was given on 5th June, not seven years ago. I then said that I would look into the matter personally with the Chairman of the Commission. Perhaps during the Recess I shall have an opportunity to do So.
In considering the matter, will the right hon. Gentleman take into account the fact that it is not only the amount paid which is in question, but that only a selected few taximen are able to ply for hire?
