Question

A constituent of mine has asked me to ask the following:   Über is currently banned in a number of countries around the world, yet Über carries on operating in these countries which means that they are not compliant with the law in those countries. Do Über still meet the requirement of a "Fit and Proper Person" to run a Minicab Company here in London with such a blatant disregard [in my constituent's view] of Law and Order. If yes please explain your reasons.

TfL is satisfied that Uber London Limited is a fit and proper person to hold a London private hire operator's licence and that it complies with the law as it relates to the operation of the private hire trade in London.
