Transport for London (TfL) has been invited to join the Working Group and TfL representatives have attended all of its meetings to present the challenges faced by London on key issues.

The Government best practice guidance for taxi and private hire is due to be put out to consultation in 2018. I am sure that you will agree that it would be irresponsible to commit the London trade to guidance that has yet to be published.
