A Powys taxi driver has had his Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver’s Licence revoked following allegations of “inappropriate behaviour” by a 16-year-old girl.

The decision has come to light in the minutes of the Taxi Licensing Sub-Committee held at Neaudd Maldwyn in Welshpool in May this year.

Details and the location of the taxi driver have not been revealed.

The minutes will be seen by the Planning, Taxi Licensing and Rights of Way Committee on Thursday.

The minutes state: "The Children’s Manager for north Powys attended the meeting and explained that the disclosure of inappropriate behaviour was made by a vulnerable 16-year-old to her casework support officers.
"The Licensing Officer explained that *** licence had been suspended based on allegations concerning the above matter and previous convictions.

"The Licensing Officer referred to the recommendations in a Safeguarding Report of a Professional Strategy Meeting held on the 13th April 2018. The Sub-Committee also considered written representations from *** and three references supplied by him."

It added: "The sub-committee withdrew to consider, in private, the review and the evidence they had heard, with the support of the Clerk.

"On their return the Chair announced their decision. In reaching the decision members took into account the relevant written and verbal representations."

The sub-committee's reason for its decision was: "That he is not a fit and proper person to hold a Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver’s Licence."
