We have received a response from the deputy mayor to our request for why the Metropolitan police had not filled 20 Vacancies for individuals who could have been speeding up the London DBS Process.
The response tells us little and in honesty shows us there is no solution in sight.
We will be asking more questions on this disastrous situation that not only affects Private Hire and Taxi in London but all those who require a DBS check to work within both business and voluntary sectors.
Surely after nearly two Months the group should have found a solution.
