Proposal 1: ! The first proposal is to allow PHV operators licensed in England (outside London) and Wales to sub-contract bookings to an operator licensed in a different district. London PHV operators are allowed to sub-contract to an operator outside London so it would be a case of establishing a more level playing field.

The PHRC not only agrees this proposal would reduce a burden / remove an inherently unfair geographic restraint of trade, but that it is a very small legislative change that will transform the way the private hire trade operates and create employment, improve responsiveness to customer bookings and reduce CO2 vehicle emissions by reducing the distances travelled by PHVs without carrying passengers.

iv. In a modern Britain there should be no ‘invisible borders’ or ‘barriers to free trade’, as protectionism and outdated thinking belongs to yesterday. In London for environmental and safety reasons ‘Licensed Operators’ in Private Hire are not constrained by ‘quotas and artificial operating borders’, etc., and rightly can pick up and drop anywhere with a previously made booking.

:lol: :lol:

unless your Uber, or not one of my members :lol: :lol: :lol:



In addition to the above in London there is strong evidence that Uber PHV Drivers are traveling into the London Licensing Area (Cross Border) and parking vehicles without bookings that are then being ‘virtually hailed’ via the Uber App, which shows their availability and position, so they are
acting like a taxi.


what a difference a day makes

Although all this was pointed out at the time, I'm most grateful for you reminding the good people of TDO the utter f***ing hypocrisy of the London Spivs.
