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...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Offence of shining or directing a laser at a vehicle (21 Mar 2017)

Rob Marris: ...not need the other stuff. The subsection would cover not only passengers disembarking after waiting on the apron and being moved on but the aircraft being moved into a hangar. If someone shone a laser at a pilot driving an aircraft on the tarmac, that very big vehicle could do a lot of damage to other people, even if all the passengers had disembarked and there was only one pilot on...

Sky/21ST Century Fox: Merger (16 Mar 2017)

Karen Bradley: I am sure that Ofcom will have heard the hon. Gentleman’s comments. I hope that his comments about fit and proper persons for taxi driving is not a reflection on any experiences he may have had in the past.

Scottish Parliament: Draft Climate Change Plan (16 Mar 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: ...week, I am contributing a little bit to active travel. So far, I have walked 17 miles. That is not a huge amount—although it sounds a lot when you add up the miles day by day—but it is better than getting the taxi up to the station every day. Walking helps me to become a little bit fitter and it is better for the climate. Individual behaviours present significant challenges....

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Mar 2017)

Andrew Selous: Q I just want to return to two groups that miss out on the freedom and opportunities of being able to drive. We talked about older people and disabled people but also young drivers, for whom insurance is often prohibitively expensive, running into many thousands of pounds. What analysis have you done of the advantages of connected and autonomous vehicles over and above taxis, private hire...

Sky/21ST Century Fox: Proposed Merger: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill (6 Mar 2017)

Stewart McDonald: ...as land was the material of the agricultural age and iron was the material of the industrial age, so data must surely be the material of the new information age that we find ourselves in. As has been mentioned, this country is driving the innovation as far as driverless cars are concerned, but let us be entirely honest with ourselves: we are slightly behind. I accept that the Bill goes...
