The difference is for Hackneys it is Legal, for Private Hire it is Illegal.

That is what is being passed by the deregulation bill. to make it legal for private hire as well. The discussion on the radio show was about how bad it would be if private hire can do exactly what hackney can already do. So why will it be so bad for private hire to do the same as hackney regarding passing work to others?

So it is ok for hackneys to do cross border hires but not for private hire. What is the difference?

On a personal note I don't see the problem ..I put the link up because the people that jumped in with their size 13" and stated all this are still blaming other people.

Mr T has hit the nail on it's head.

Unite, the union of the thick, lobbied to make it illegal for PH to work/sit in other areas, and the gov has made it legal to do both.

But they, alongside with the buffoons in the GMB, have ensured the world is now a safer place by stopping wives of PH driver having the nerve to actually drive those vehicles when their husbands are asleep.

Sexist pigs methinks.

You are correct, though it probably affects Wales too.
Taxis and PH are a devolved issue in Scotland and covered by separate legislation :D
