Andrew Jones

Clause 145 of the Policing and Crime Bill currently being considered by Parliament would enable the Secretary of State to issue Statutory Guidance to taxi and private hire licensing authorities so as to protect children, and vulnerable individuals who are 18 or over, from harm.

There is at present no plan to bring forward further primary legislation to reform the legislative framework for taxis and private hire vehicles in the current session.
