Support Local Private Hire and Taxi Drivers

Petition from Mr Hussain:

 

“We the undersigned petition the council to provide support for the local private hire and taxi drivers to enable us to carry out our vital function in providing a safe transport service for key and essential workers as well as the general public. The Covid-19 pandemic has decimated our trade causing record number of drivers leaving the trade whilst the remaining ones are struggling to survive. The government has provided limited financial support but very strict eligibility rules meant many missed out on this support. We request the council to implement the following measures:

 

     i)        Help with the cost of making our vehicles safe for the traveling public as well as our members by providing funding for protective screens and other measures;

 

    ii)        Financial assistance in the form of grants; and

 

   iii)        Reduction of all licensing fees during the crisis.
