As it was only a short judgment i was hoping to include it in the skeleton bundle, but will have to make do with just citing it.


Im sure the judge will be able to obtain a copy......just cite the paragraph of interest and quote "Parsons vs South Kesteven (Unreported) Lincoln Crown Court 1996"

I presume from the interest in the case you are to object against a fare increase?

Quite the oposite, we haven't had a fare increase since 2008 despite many requests. We are also appealing against the councils decision to remove several of our tariffs which we use for our MPV's. We did have 8 tariffs, 1-4 for up to four passengers and then 5-8 for over four passengers. The council have done away with tariffs 5-8 in favour of a one off charge of 50p per person over four. the net result is a loss on MPV rates up to £1.20 PER MILE on the worst effected tariff.

There are also some quirky side effects to their new set up in that a vehicle carrying 8 passengers can now be charged £10 for the 1st mile, which is 117% increase on the original tariff. Yes we do want an increase but this was ridiculous.

The committee wanted this to run for a trial period of 12 months running from Oct 20th 2014, however the licensing Dept have failed to notify anyone, other than those who apply for a new Hackney Carriage license, of the change to the table of fares to date. This has now caused a two tier table of fares in the county.

So basically it's been a major F..k up and many are either breaking the law by still charging under the old tariff, or newly licensed Hackneys running at a loss when compared to others.

I would copy and paste the summary in the opening thread.

It will save the judge time.

Once you have passed a copy to the other side then if they have issues with it they can give them views to the judge.

Who will be mighterly miffed If they make him look it up and it is as it is. :wink:
