Question 550: To ask the Minister for Transport; Tourism and Sport if he will provide an update on the review of the taxi industry [17007/11]
Leo Varadkar (Minister, Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport; Dublin West, Fine Gael)
Earlier this month I set out the terms of reference for the taxi regulation reviewÂ in line with the commitment in the Programme for Government. The review will address a wide range of issues relating to the taxi sector and will allow for consultation with all the stakeholders, including the taxi industry and consumers.
On Friday last, I made a further announcement concerningÂ the membership of the review Steering GroupÂ andÂ I invited submissions to be made on the review.
