Answer for PCO Enquiry

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Whilst this recent case was indeed a serious one which has since been addressed I do not feel an independent enquiry into the PCO is necessary. TfL appointed a new Director of Taxi and Private Hire, John Mason on 28 September and he has started to review all aspects of the services delivered by the Directorate and deserves the opportunity to implement the changes and improvements he identifies and feels are necessary.
