    Good afternoon
    Without Prejudice
    As questions still remain unanswered, the BIT organisation – Taxi Watch Dog team see the way forward is, resolution
    Please find copy below of an email already sent you by way of CC
    Therefore it is now appropriate for Daniel Cook to come on the record and confirm he has the information stated in the content of the emails. The BIT organisation’s Senior Partner – TAXI WATCH DOG is making it quite clear to the public and taxi licensing that –  taxi licensing would be deemed to be tampering with the Proposal now linked with a Tariff number 4 which was mentioned in the letter taxi drivers recently received, if they do not include vital content for a modern day Cabinet. We note taxi licensing invited Premier Cars to provide a proposal and accepted it but did not remove their content.
    The BIT organisation therefore demand taxi licensing with shared regulatory services Policy Officer Daniel Cook include the Somerset formula doc calculation, divided by a recognized average formula for the Bridgend rural taxi trade today . As stated he should add the Bridgend licensing costs and so replace the somerset fees. We will use this basic calculation as an example for 2018 since this matter was first brought to our light in late 2016 when costs were lower for the trade
    For avoidance of doubt a previous Foi request from the council stated – the council could not possibly know the average cost of the Bridgend fleet
    Therefore the somerset formula makes an average calculation based on taxis bought across the borough taking into account any potential variations in costs for the Bridgend fleet. I good yard stick already acceptable by the trade. The formula talks of taxi insurance and getting quotes, The formula document talks of licensing fees. The document explains to a rural Cabinet how costs and wages are calculated also, for a taxi trade, using a trade calculation using a formula which included licensing costs. All of which must be resubmitted with confirmation of the same from Mr Cook as explained. For avoidance of doubt the somerset calculations can be easily calculated our expert tells us from Canada
    Mr Cook should also note that the Carmarthenshire Tariff – option 4 for up to 4 passengers- has dropped 19 places in the national hackney carriage table of fares since BIT was born in late 2016 and since September last year when the same 4 option was still falling still
    We look forward to taxi licensing acting in the public interests and Daniel Cook or even Dave Holland as there are clear directions with words. Words not used in the report previously supplied to licensing and Darren Mephem, Karen Williams, Front reception and distributed to trade members via media broadcast
    Yours Sincerely
