Question

I have received reports of significant delays in applications to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for taxi licence renewal. As you will be aware, these delays cause significant hardship to drivers who are unable to work until the application is completed. Will you lobby Government to ensure the DBS completes the checks and provides new licences to taxi drivers as soon as possible?
