Dear Ms. Thomas

RSN16219

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act.

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority is not involved with the process of issuing private hire driver licences, as these functions are carried out by the respective district councils. We would therefore have no recorded information to provide to you in response to your enquiry.

I note from WhatDoTheyKnow.com that you have submitted your request to Wirral, Halton, Knowsley, St Helens and Sefton Councils already, so the only remaining one would be Liverpool City Council. They can be contacted either through WhatDoTheyKnow.com or via their own website at http://liverpool.gov.uk/council/data-pro...

Kind regards,

Andrew Henderson
