Under devolution, transport in London is the responsibility of the Mayor and Transport for London. As such, the Department for Transport has made no assessment of the share of the taxi and private hire market of Addison Lee and other companies. It is open to the Law Commission to take issues relating to market share into account as part of their consideration of the law around taxis and private hire vehicles, should they think this relevant.
