He has mislead the GLA transport committee by stating on record that Private Hire drivers do not need full time hire and reward insurance policies, that they can purchase "On-Off" Hire and reward insurance (infering that it is not necessary for TfL as the regulator to ensure all Private Hire Vehicles are continually insured correctly) The MIB confirmed no such policy exists.
Leon Daniels stated publicly on record in the media that Uber were not using a taximeter to conduct business and then subsequently appointed a QC (Martin Chamberlain) to uphold his view by failing to make the case properly.
He was questioned by the GLA transport committee on record why TfL hadn't insisted that Uber have a manned telephone line as per the 1998 Private Hire act requires, to which he attempted to obfuscate the issue by telling the GLA committee that the wording of the act is vague and only means that an operator is required to have a land line telephone on the day the license is applied for.
Leon Daniels has now been found to have been in communication with Uber via email assisting Uber UK to word their PR and advertising or complaints responses so as to mislead the public and further blur the lines between Private Hire and Hackney Carriage and hence place public safety at risk.
