Railways: Reliability - Question for Short Debate (31 Oct 2017)

Lord Greaves: ...Three times in the last two weeks I’ve had to take/pick up my Mum from Burnley/Blackburn as the service hasn’t run to Colne. One of those times we brought a group of young girls back who lived in Colne and had been kicked off late at night in the dark and expected to wait over an hour for the next train”. Nobby reports: “I was there that night. My wife was trying to...

Public Bill Committee: Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill: Examination of Witnesses (31 Oct 2017)

...are slightly concerned that that is not recognised. We are not opposed to this in any way—it provides all sorts of opportunities—but because the overall approach is about private individualised driving rather than about the implications for the whole road transport industry of passengers, as Adrian was saying, with road haulage and taxis, it is also going to operate on a marine...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: ...algorithms. Those debates must be had in this place and we are missing the opportunity to do so. Where in the Bill do the Government set out how they will prevent the mass unemployment associated with driverless vehicles? According to the House of Commons Library, nearly 1 million are employed as drivers today: taxi drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers and driving instructors. It is clear...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Industries (19 Oct 2017)

Alex Cunningham: Sex offenders and others banned from driving taxis by local authorities are providing the same service simply by applying for a licence to drive a minibus. Will the Minister continue the work done by me and his predecessor on closing that loophole?

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: ...one of my constituents —a 77-year-old pensioner who cares full-time for her disabled adult daughter—has described in a letter to Moya Greene, “this journey would be exhausting but since I do not drive and I am unable to afford a taxi, there would be no alternative to it.” Royal Mail has argued that a need for modernisation is driving the changes, but when I visited...

Digital Understanding - Motion to Take Note (7 Sep 2017)

Baroness Harding of Winscombe: ...but it is unlikely to happen simultaneously and symmetrically so that individuals are not left stranded unless we do something about it. I shall talk briefly about one example: cars. If you take a taxi ride in London today and mention the word “Uber”, your conversation is pretty much guaranteed for the rest of the journey. The danger is that those taxi drivers are actually...

Armed Forces: Thameslink (19 Jul 2017)

Oliver Dowden: ...for trains stopping every time. I would be grateful for an update on anything the Minister can do to raise the pressure on that. There is also a broader question about the infrastructure. A great number of my constituents drive to and park at the station. In both Elstree and Borehamwood and Radlett there are single-tier carparks. I simply do not understand why another level or two cannot...

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Stephen Doughty: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Wilson. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting) for doing so much hard work on the report. I also thank the Cardiff taxi drivers with whom I have worked for a number of years—particularly the members of Taxi Drivers Cardiff—and the GMB union. I draw attention to the relevant declaration in the...

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Paul Sweeney: ...were pioneered there, too, most notably the Johnston Dogcart, which, in 1895, was the first motor car to be built in Britain by railway engineer George Johnston in Balgrayhill. The first road trials took place in the dead of night, with Johnston driving the car at a reckless 12 mph on a 20-mile journey around Glasgow. For this apparently reckless behaviour, he was charged with contravening...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Julia Dockerill: ...seat where an agrarian Englishness and sense of stability mixes with the upward mobility of the metropolis, and where the brash thrust of the centre breaks into something gentler, almost nostalgic. It is a place where taxis, vans and the tools of tradespeople rest on driveways after a hard day’s work; where doorways are swept and homes taken pride in; and where people hold...

Chris Gibb Report: Improvements to Southern Railway (4 Jul 2017)

Maria Caulfield: ...the Southern rail network. The constituency is served solely by Southern, so there are no alternative rail routes. It is also very rural, and there is no bus service in many parts, so people either drive or get the train—otherwise, they are left completely stranded. The 18 months of sheer misery were caused by a whole range of things; all the reasons are laid out in the Gibb report,...

Middle East (IRC Report) - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2017)

Lord Turnberg: ...pause in settlement building a few years later by Mr Netanyahu, at the behest of the Americans, in the vain hope that Mr Abbas would resume negotiations, was far from encouraging. Little wonder that my Israeli taxi driver—those drivers are never short of an opinion, nor or they inhibited from expressing it—said, “The Palestinians just want to drive us into the sea”....

Air Quality: London - Motion to Take Note (3 Jul 2017)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...investment will help us to continue to deliver one of the most comprehensive programmes of support for ultra-low emission vehicles in the world. The Government have also taken steps to incentivise taxi drivers to update cars and have made £20 million available to local authorities to support the rollout of ultra-low emission taxis across the UK by reducing the upfront cost and...

Scottish Parliament: Vale of Leven Hospital (GP Out-of-hours Service) (30 May 2017)

Maurice Corry: ...service to Paisley would mean that patients would have travel times of more than an hour and would incur personal costs in making those journeys. Young married couples come up to the area to serve in the Navy. The wives might not drive, and in the middle of the night one of them might face a panic situation with one of the children. If there was no cash on the table for a taxi, there would...

Emissions and Vehicle Type Approval — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (20 Apr 2017)

John Hayes: ...that public transport is part of our response to the air quality challenge. My view, which I have made crystal clear in the Department, is that if we can get fleet purchasing and public transport, including buses and taxis, in a better place in respect of emissions—by that I mean getting those kind of vehicles moving to a low-emission metric, although I have no fixed idea of exactly...

Diesel Vehicle Scrappage Scheme — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

John Spellar: ...? If we give them £1,000, who will lend them the money to buy new vehicles? Will they buy vehicles from further up the chain? There may be answers, but figures came there none during this debate. What about taxi drivers? Birmingham City Council is proposing a purge of diesel taxis. Taxi driving is entry-level employment for many in this country in all communities. Are we telling them...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Nigel Mills: .... There are more measures that we could try to take to encourage people not to pay cash in hand to avoid paying VAT. It is very hard for an individual to know whether the person cutting their hedge or driving their taxi is tax registered. Perhaps we should have some kind of registration process so that a person can say, “I want to engage people who are fully tax compliant. If you...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Diesel Vehicles: Exhaust Emissions (29 Mar 2017)

John Hayes: ...reducing levels for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) remains challenging. One of the main reasons for current NO2 levels is the failure of diesel vehicles to deliver expected emission reductions in real world driving conditions. That is why the UK has secured agreement at EU level to introduce more stringent real driving emissions testing for all new cars and vans across the EU from September...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air pollution and vehicle technology (23 Mar 2017)

John Hayes: The work that we do will need to be conducted with the same kind of rigour and vigour that I bring to all of my work. As the hon. Gentleman knows, I like to drive my team hard in the Department for Transport, and I am always prepared to listen to the advice of Members from across the House. He has made his point very effectively. What I did yesterday is again relevant to the amendment and our...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air pollution and vehicle technology (21 Mar 2017)

Andrew Selous: ...The first is on the fuel duty escalator, and the second is to have conversations with some of the major vehicle manufacturers and van manufacturers such as Ford and General Motors, which already produce right-hand drive LPG vehicles for overseas markets but do not produce a left-hand drive version for the UK. The Minister may not have been briefed on that area by his officials so far. If...
