Following the launch of my Air Quality Strategy in December 2010, TfL undertook an additional stakeholder consultation to identity what exemptions to the age limits for taxis and private hire vehicles should be applied.

These exemptions were announced in the Taxi and Private Hire Notice 09/11 (http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/businessandpartners/09-11-maqs-ta...) and full details of this consultation and the exemptions can by found on the TfL website at: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/businessandpartners/taxisandprivatehire/21358.aspx.
