Joint Oireachtas Committee on Public Service Oversight and Petitions
Decisions on Public Petitions Received
Have we a schedule of the big ticket items that are coming up in the next while and what slots are available? The reason I ask is because there is one particular petition of which I am aware that was submitted recently from representatives of the taxi drivers and it is time constrained. There is a new regime of charging and also to do with the metering in taxis which requires them all to get new meters. They feel they have not been adequately consulted on this change. They have submitted a petition to look at the consultation issue. The time constraint is towards the end of April and they were hoping they might get a chance to put their case.
