PRIVATE HIRE ASSOCIATION: Thank you to all the private hire and hackney carriage drivers who came to the meeting at the community centre last week. It was a well-attended meeting once again and I would also like to thank the council staff from the taxi licensing office as well as the Newton Bar taxi testing depot for their time and for the presentation they made for the benefit of the members of the association. Also can I thank Coun Hopkins for his time too. I feel as though some progress is now being made as a result of these meetings but there are still some issues outstanding that Im hoping can be discused and hopefully resolved, but we need the continuing support of the Wakefield and District taxi drivers to make that happen. Further updates will be made after our next committee meeting.
