The regulation of the small public service vehicle (SPSV) industry, including the licencing of taxis, is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) under the provisions of the Taxi Regulation Act 2013.

As “Section 15 Assignment” (S15A) forms are submitted directly to the Authority, it is best placed to provide the data, which is being sought by the Deputy.

Accordingly, I have referred your questions 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.
