Ten minute rule bill » National Taxi Association

On 29 October 2013, Conservative MP for Bedford Richard Fuller introduced a ten minute rule bill on CCTV in taxis and private hire cabs. Mr Fuller is calling on the government to introduce legislation which requires CCTV to be installed in licensed Hackney carriages and private hire vehicles – and for a minimum standard to be established for such installations. Mr Fuller wants private hire and taxi drivers to be afforded the same protection as “bus drivers, airline staff and railway employees”. In January 2012 Mehar Dariwal, a taxi driver in Mr Fuller’s constituency, was killed by a customer. source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/democracylive/
