To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 17 May 2022 to Question 796, what steps his Department is taking to ensure that the licensing authority, Transport for London, is enforcing compliance in the context of unlicensed private hire vehicles continuing to operate in London as a result of regulation 9(14), issued by Transport for London following the Divisional Court’s judgment in December 2021, lacking enforcement power.

Private hire vehicle (PHV) legislation in London requires London PHV operator licence holders to comply with conditions attached to their licence, such as that set by regulation 9(14) of the Private Hire Vehicles (London) (Operators' Licences) Regulations 2000, as amended. If a London PHV operator licence holder fails to comply with a condition of their licence the legislation provides that the licensing authority, Transport for London, can suspend or revoke the licence.
