TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT:
What provision is in place to stop uninsured journeys from taking place?
If TfLTPH consider Uber not to be Fit and proper on safety grounds, why was 17(2) of the 1998 PH Act not invoked to stop them operating under appeal?
The trade has no alternative but to JR the decision.

Coming Soon.... Round Two!!
But let’s not forget the people who will soon be coming up for re-election who have lobbied hard from this toxic company.
TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT :
Helen Chapman, Director of Licensing, Regulation and Charging at TfL, said: “As the regulator of private hire services in London we are required to make a decision today on whether Uber is fit and proper to hold a licence. Safety is our absolute top priority. While we recognise Uber has made improvements, it is unacceptable that Uber has allowed passengers to get into minicabs with drivers who are potentially unlicensed and uninsured.
“It is clearly concerning that these issues arose, but it is also concerning that we cannot be confident that similar issues won’t happen again in future. If they choose to appeal, Uber will have the opportunity to publicly demonstrate to a magistrate whether it has put in place sufficient measures to ensure potential safety risks to passengers are eliminated. If they do appeal, Uber can continue to operate and we will closely scrutinise the company to ensure the management has robust controls in place to ensure safety is not compromised during any changes to the app.”
