MPs say kick Uber out of London as it 'failed to report sex attacks on passengers'

MPs across all parties have called for the controversial Uber to be kicked out of London and not rewarded with a new operators licence.  The cross-party group made up by ten Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem MPs, signed a letter delivered to Transport for London. It strongly urged the regulator not to renew the impending Uber operatoring licence in the capital.  The letter centres around the allegation of being an ‘unfit and improper operator’ after scandal broke recently around unreported crimes. 

Wes Streeting MP said: ‘The safety of Londoners must be at the forefront of decisions taken about the taxi and private hire industry in our capital city. We do not believe that Uber has shown itself to be a fit and proper operator.’

The licence is due to expire on 30th September and has received little in the way of support for its renewal at this stage.
