Question

TfL cited in their refusal to re-licence Uber, that they were not "fit and proper" and a "lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues on public safety and security".  Why are they still allowed to operate during the appeal process which could take months, or more than a year to conclude?

Private hire legislation includes provision to appeal a licensing decision and Uber London Limited can continue to operate until the appeal process is exhausted.
