On 23 October 2006 a Select Committee of the House of Lords considered the opposed clauses within the Transport for London Bill. Following agreed amendments to several provisions to meet the Petition of the London Borough of Barnet, the only remaining opposed clauses related to the regulation of taxi services within Greater London. Subject to one relatively minor amendment, the opposed clauses were allowed, notwithstanding Petitions from taxi operators. The Bill will now be considered by the Unopposed Committee in the House of Lords, before passing in due course for consideration by the House of Commons. TfL were represented by Charles George QC, and the London Borough of Barnet by Andrew Tait QC, both of these Chambers.
