London mayor Sadiq Khan today came under fresh pressure to strip minicab giant Uber of its licence to operate.
MPs on the All Party Parliamentary Group on Taxis claimed the American-owned firm was not a 'fit and proper operator.' It follows a series of alleged sex attacks by Uber drivers.
The MPs claimed police figures show an allegation of rape or sexual assault against Uber drivers is made every 11 days. The MPs accused Uber of failing to report crimes to the police.
Transport for London, chaired by Mr Khan, will rule on Uber's future before the end of September. Earlier this year the firm was given a temporary extension to its licence.
The MPs wrote to TfL Commissioner Mike Brown urging him to follow the example of other cities and revoke the licence.
Sadiq Khan said the MP's concerns would be considered before a final decision on Uber's licence application.
