Taxi firms to take part in survey
Scottish Liberal Democrat South Scotland MSP Jim Hume is urging taxi firms across East Lothian to take part in the SNP’s consultation on its plans to introduce tighter controls on taxi licensing and private car hire.
He said: “The SNP say that the consultation is in response to concerns about the influence of criminality within the trade and the working of the current licensing regime.
“As such, the proposals offer a range of changes to the current system which are aimed at tightening up the licensing process.
“However, I’m anxious to ensure that the smaller and often family run businesses are not adversely affected by the proposals. ”
