§ 32. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Home Secretary the total number of taximeter cabs licensed by the Metropolitan police for London; how many have been licensed during the present year; and whether there is now a new standard of taximeter cab required before a licence is granted?
Motor-cabs licensed during the year ended 30th June, 1924, numbered 7,918; 3,952 of the licences were issued during 1924. Since September last, motor-cabs have had to pass an efficiency test before they are licensed.
