Written answers (Question to Transport)

As the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and statutory frameworks in relation to public transport.  The regulation of the small public service vehicle (SPSV) industry - which encompasses taxis, hackneys and limousines - is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) under the provisions of the Taxi Regulation Act 2013

Therefore, I have referred your question to the NTA for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
