The Government last week (21 July) published the long-awaited Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards. Philip Kolvin QC discusses the implications of the new standards.
The implications of the new Standards cannot be over-emphasised. Authorities will need to review their licence in the light of them, use them in all of their decision-making and even in some cases review existing licences in light of them.
As the Standards say: "Given that the standards have been set directly to address the safeguarding of the public and the potential impact of failings in this area, the importance of thoroughly considering these standards cannot be overstated".
