Answer for Social, cultural and economic opportunities in London

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Whilst the intervention of Eric Forth MP during the passage of the Private Hire Vehicles (London) Bill did cause a slight hiatus, it did not prevent the Bill from being enacted in the Parliamentary session in which it was introduced and receiving royal assent on 28 July 1998. Any delay incurred was not, therefore, significant. .
