Responding to Transport for London's decision not to renew Uber's operating licence, Andrew Allison, Head of Campaigns at The Freedom Association, said:
"This decision has more to do with political pressure from black cab drivers, trade unions, and Labour MPs, than it has to do with public safety. 40,000 Uber drivers are going to have their livelihoods taken away from them, and millions of people who use the service are going to find it harder to get a taxi. London's transport infrastructure can barely cope at peak times, and this decision is going to make travelling across the capital even harder and more expensive.
"Uber is, of course, going to appeal against this decision. We wish the company well."
