Change the law so that a taxi or private hire vehicle needs to be licensed in the area a journey either starts or finishes in order to take on a booking.

Currently people licensed in one authority can work as a PHV in any other authority in the country.

Cross border working restricts the ability of licensing authorities to enforce effectively, set appropriate safety standards for drivers, vehicles and operators and can undermine the confidence the public have in the licensed taxi and private hire trades within their area.
