Responded By: Hon Rachel Nolan MP on 28/04/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the lack of validity in the claim by the Taxi Council of Queensland that its advice represents the comprehensive view and carries the support of the majority of stakeholders in the Queensland taxi industry. Belief in this claim has resulted in the majority of Queensland taxi industry stakeholders being not properly represented in consultations with Queensland Transport on matters of policies and regulations. For the health of the industry and better provision of taxi services, industry consultations must be more comprehensive.Your petitioners therefore request the House to declare that the Taxi Council of Queensland be no longer officially recognised by the Queensland government as the peak industry body for the Queensland taxi industry and move to establish a body which is more widely supported by the industry's stakeholders.
