Motion text

That this House notes that in Manchester 2,500 private hire taxis are currently prohibited from using bus lanes, while 1,500 hackney cabs are permitted to do so; believes that this unfairly discriminates against private hire vehicles in Manchester and notes that 59 local authorities allow both private hire and hackney carriages to use bus lanes; and calls on Manchester City Council to be fair and consistent in its approach to the use of bus lanes by taxis and private hire vehicles.
