55. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the reason the NTA requires taxi owners to remove the protective screening recommended by Covid-19 public health measures before they can pass the taxi suitability test; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [57910/21]

The National Transport Authority (NTA), as the statutory regulator for the SPSV sector under the Taxi Regulation Act 2013, has published information for the SPSV industry on COVID-19 which includes guidelines in relation to the installation of temporary dividing screens. This information is available on the NTA's website.

Given the role of the NTA as independent regulator, I have referred the Deputies' question to the Authority for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days.
