Written Answers — Department for Transport: Taxis: Insurance (22 May 2018)

Nusrat Ghani: The taxi and private hire vehicle drivers affected are likely to be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and, as Alpha Insurance was based in Denmark, some may also be protected under the Danish insurance guarantee scheme. The FSCS are working with the Danish parties to put in place the appropriate arrangements for claims to be handled. We are aware that a number...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (17 May 2018)

Baroness Worthington: ...drafting and perhaps Amendment 75 should not have been included in this group, but it makes quite an important point. I want to spend a moment reflecting on the role of cities. Chinese cities are driving the revolution in transport and forcing European car manufacturers to change their investment strategies. But people in Europe will not change their strategies unless we ask them to. OEMs...

Scottish Parliament: Highlands and Islands Airports (Car Parking Charges) (10 May 2018)

Tavish Scott: ...because the measure simply should not be happening. Sumburgh airport is located on the most southerly tip of Shetland, 25 miles from Lerwick, the island’s capital. The vast majority who fly from Sumburgh drive to and park at the airport, because there is no dedicated airport shuttle bus connecting to flights and no public transport connections to Sumburgh from any other part of...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (1st Day) (9 May 2018)

Lord Rees of Ludlow: ...to agree on it. I am surprised that the noble Lord, Lord Borwick, did not want to change, “does not need to be monitored”, because that is a subjective question. For example, if you are in a taxi, are you happy if no driver is there? If you are flying in a plane, it will be on autopilot most of the time, but are you happy if there is no pilot there who can take over and is...

Skills Strategy (8 May 2018)

Robert Halfon: ...the Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills has her work cut out because, as the skills strategy is implemented, the economy is changing rapidly. Driverless vehicles will automate road haulage and taxi operations. Artificial intelligence will power medical diagnosis, and 3D printing will be used to construct bridges and houses. Our skills strategy needs to not only address the skills...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Second Reading (24 Apr 2018)

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: ..., and perhaps I may pass on to him and to the House the following example. Last Friday, I was in the north of England to attend a board meeting of a company of which I am the chairman. I took a taxi and, as is my wont, I inquired of the temperature of the taxi driver, political and otherwise. We got on to the issue of whiplash injuries. He told me that it was prevalent in this and other...

UK Digital and Tech Industries — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Darren Jones: ...slightly boring at the time, is a really exciting route through to some fantastic jobs. It is also about reskilling. An example that I gave in the House in the debate on autonomous vehicles was about when all of our taxis become driverless taxis and we have a load of taxi drivers who will need to find new work. This is not just about young people; it is about reskilling older people to...

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Philip Hammond: ...time, we have cut taxes for 31 million working people by raising the personal allowance again, in line with our manifesto commitment. We have taken more than 4 million people out of tax altogether since 2010. We are freezing fuel duty for an eighth successive year, taking the saving for a typical car driver to £850, compared with Labour’s plans, and raising the national living...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review of relief for first-time buyers (21 Feb 2018)

Wes Streeting: ...in my name and those of a number of Members on both sides of the House. They deal with the vehicle excise duty supplement, and, in particular, with how it applies to the new electric zero-emission taxis. I should probably declare an interest, as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on taxis. I am delighted that the amendment carries not only cross-party support but support throughout...

Scottish Parliament: St John’s Hospital Children’s Ward (21 Feb 2018)

Neil Findlay: ..., Breich and Addiewell and beyond, did not have to endure long and sometimes life-threatening journeys to Edinburgh for treatment. I wish that parents from Bathgate, the Calders and Livingston were not forced to drive past their local hospital, just a few minutes away, and travel on the chaotic Edinburgh bypass just to get treatment for their little ones, but they have no choice. I wish...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (20 Feb 2018)

Baroness Randerson: ...in Sunderland working on the Nissan Leaf, which includes 300 people working on battery development. There are 1,000 or more jobs in the London Electric Vehicle Company, which is manufacturing the new electric taxi. It is time that the Government took a wider view, and with that we need a wider Title for the Bill. The Title refers specifically to electric vehicles, but Clause 8 also refers...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Second Reading (20 Feb 2018)

Lord Berkeley: ...talked about air. It all comes back to public acceptance. There is already a trucking experiment—probably more than that—going on in Germany. What are called “platoons”—of three trucks, I think—are driving down what I think is a private motorway. I am told that they have even found a way of having two platoons driving together in adjacent lanes and...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Schools: Transport (6 Feb 2018)

Nusrat Ghani: Taxi and private hire vehicle (PHV) drivers are eligible for an enhanced DBS certificate with check of both barred lists for licensing purposes. This is the highest level of check available and will also include details of convictions and cautions recorded on the Police National Computer and any locally held police intelligence information that may be relevant to the role. It is for licensing...

Licensing of Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Christopher Chope: ...good intentions, the proposed remedy is disproportionate to the problem. The hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) accepts in his explanatory notes to the Bill that to obtain a licence to drive private hire vehicles or taxis, people have to show that they are of good character and that they are fit and proper persons. I have no problem with that, and I would have no problem with...

Parking (Code of Practice) Bill (2 Feb 2018)

Stephen Doughty: ...registered. The process for motorists should be simple and straightforward. I want to deal with one more area, because it relates to the next Bill that will be debated today. I have seen harassment of taxi drivers in my constituency, for example, when they operate around some major retail areas and are waiting to pick up elderly or vulnerable customers, who want to get back home with their...

Littering From Vehicles Outside London (Keepers: Civil Penalties) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (1 Feb 2018)

Baroness Bakewell of Hardington Mandeville: ...piece of legislation. I declare an interest as a district councillor. I was interested in the contributions made by the noble Lord, Lord Marlesford, and the noble Baroness. We have all seen cars driving past us, or followed cars from which rubbish has been thrown carelessly out of the window. As we have heard, litter is one of the scourges of our throwaway society. When I was growing up,...

Personal Independence Payments — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (31 Jan 2018)

Melanie Onn: ...me. This is by far the biggest area of casework that I receive in my office. Mr M’s daughter had a stroke and is partially paralysed. She was expected to get to an appointment 40 minutes’ drive away in Scunthorpe for 9 am. There is no direct bus service so they would have had to have caught the 7.34 am train from Grimsby to get there on time, and they did not know how to get to...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Cabinet Office: Travel (10 Jan 2018)

David Lidington: ...is held for Cabinet Office corporate travel contracts (travel data outside of the travel corporate contracts is not readily available and could only be acquired at a disproportionate cost). a) Taxis The guidance for using a taxi for official travel allows for the use of a taxi when:you are outside of normal working hours (before 6am and after 9pm)no other suitable method of public...

Industrial Strategy - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Howell of Guildford: ...—it was drafted by people with a 20th century mindset. In the 21st century, successful industrial progress is part of a much wider constellation of forces than this document seems to recognise: the drive for change begins more than ever in the home and deep in social structures. The authors of the White Paper should have perhaps paid more attention to things such as my right...

Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (Science and Technology Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2017)

Lord Rosser: My Lords, I add my thanks to the noble Earl, Lord Selborne, and his committee for their report. As has been said, it contains four main findings. These are that the Government are too focused on driverless cars when the early benefits are likely to be in other sectors; that the development of connected and autonomous vehicles across different sectors needs co-ordination; that there needs to...
