Minicabs risk bringing London to a standstill, say MPs | London


Urgent government action is needed to stop minicabs bringing London to a standstill, according to MPs.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Taxis today called on ministers to grant new powers to the mayor.

The MPs’ report claimed the explosion in private hire vehicles was to blame for growing congestion and pollution.

The number of licensed minicabs in London has doubled since 2010 to 120,000, said the report.

We’re calling on the government to grant the Mayor the powers he needs to cap the number of private hire vehicles in London. We should all be able to enjoy our city without breathing in deadly toxic air on congested streets clogged up with empty minicabs.

– WES STREETING MP, LABOUR, ILFORD NORTH
