As the Deputy may be aware, I asked the National Transport Authority (NTA) to conduct a public consultation on rickshaws last year, which concluded at the end of September. A report on the consultation, along with recommendations by the NTA, were submitted to my Department in the latter part of 2017. 

My Department is now considering a range of options for regulating rickshaws from the perspective of proportionality, public safety and enforcement as well as regarding the question of costs and benefits.  I intend to select a preferred approach in the near future, with any corresponding legislative provisions to be developed shortly thereafter.
