‘Deregulation Bill’ – Coalition Government announce removal of Taxi and Private Hire measures from Bill

DFT Urgent Press Announcement
April 2014

Following an outcry from certain sections of the Taxi and Private Hire trade, and a thorough review of concerns expressed, today the Government can announce the three proposed Taxi and Private Hire measures added late to the ‘Deregulation Bill’ have been removed.

The Government will instead include those measures in the proposed ‘Taxi Bill’ after the next general election.

The Law Commission have been advised.

The delayed proposals consisted of allowing a more flexible taxi booking approach, a less red tape approach to taxi license renewals, and a proposal to allow partners to drive licensed private hire vehicles when they were not being used for ‘hire and reward’.

The coalition government has listened to representations from concerned drivers and operators, and have delayed the three measures until after the May 2015 General Election.

What hadn’t been brought to the coalition Government’s attention, prior to the publication of the new Taxi and Private Hire measures (and investigations as to why are ongoing), was the fact that many partners of private hire vehicles are indeed not men, and the thought of having 1000s of extra women driving private hire vehicles was something the coalition Government couldn’t force on the good people of this country.
