Thank you for your answer to my question 2014/1404. Will you please send me the advice your office has seen on state aid rules applying to bulk buying and leasing back of a fleet of taxis? Do these rules depend upon the size of the fleet and initial purchase? Would this apply if the savings to drivers who leased the taxis came from VAT registration and also from using the increased advertising revenue that a fleet of taxis could attract? Have TfL looked at ways of doing this that would be self-financing and involve no subsidy?
