Taxi rate changes may be on hold

A majority of CDA, PvdA and SP MPs is threatening to refuse to back new taxi rates due to be introduced on 1 July, following the collapse of talks between the taxi industry and junior transport minister Tineke Huizinga-Heringa on Wednesday.

The minister wants to push ahead with the new tariffs and solve the sticking points on waiting times with adjustments to the new regulations.
