Deregulation Bill Amendments

Here are the amendments for the ongoing deregulation bill.

We have assurances from the the Local Government Association that they will not misuse licencing officer powers.

Clause 11


Page 8, line 22, at end insert—

“(e) the person who made the booking has consented to their
booking being sub-contracted to a second operator.

(1A) A licensing authority may exercise all its powers over a vehicle
licensed as a private hire vehicle or taxi if it is operating in their
area, even if the licence was issued by another licensing authority.”
