Answer for Low Emission Taxi Fund (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written answer provided on 9 December 2011:

Rather than funding the development of such taxis, the Low Emission Taxi incentive scheme, as previously announced, was always intended to be a fund that would provide subsidies to drivers to switch to the cleanest vehicles on the market. We hope that this will encourage vehicle manufacturers to bring taxis using cleaner technology to market.
