Have your say

MP for Barnsley East, Michael Dugher, has opposed changes to taxi and private hire vehicle law because of concerns they could put passengers in Barnsley at risk.

The reforms were included in the Government’s Deregulation Bill which was voted on by MPs on June 23.

The Government’s proposed reforms to the taxi and minicab trade will enable people without a minicab license drive one when it is “off duty”, end annual checks on drivers’ licences, and allow minicab operators to subcontract bookings to firms in other areas.
