Review of a Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver’s Licence

Immediately suspend the licence under Section 61 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976, as amended by Section 52 of the Road Safety Act 2006, on the grounds that, due to the licence holder not providing the Licensing Service with a valid medical certificate, the Sub-Committee no longer considers him to be a fit and proper person to hold a licence.
