To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will make it his policy to give Transport for London statutory power to cap the number of private hire vehicle licences it issues.
Answer (Sir John Hayes)
The Mayor, Transport for London, the police and local authorities have a range of tools available to them to deal with congestion and parking issues as well as enforcement of the licensing regime. Effective use of these tools will allow both licensed taxi and PHVs to lawfully meet the demands of London’s travelling public.
