star this property answer text <p>Part-time season tickets do not currently exist on the rail network. The Government is currently working in partnership with the rail industry to develop both the required infrastructure and the details of exactly how such a product should work for passengers. Until this work is completed, it would not be appropriate or cost-effective to specify part-time season tickets in rail franchises.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

I would remind all Taxi and PHV operators of their obligations under the Equality Act 2010.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Although there is no statutory requirement for Taxi and PHV drivers to undertake disability awareness training, the Department for Transport’s best practice guidance on Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Licensing in England and Wales recommends local licensing authorities work with operators, drivers and trade bodies in their area to improve drivers’ awareness of the needs of disabled people. This includes encouraging their drivers to undertake disability awareness training. A separate licensing regime regulates taxi and private hire vehicles in Scotland and the Scottish Government publishes its own Best Practice guidance.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Law Commission recently undertook a wide ranging review of taxi and private hire legislation in England and Wales and published their final report and a draft Bill on 23 May 2014, in which it recommended mandatory disability awareness training for drivers. The Government will respond to the report shortly.</p><p> </p> more like this
