RE: ILLEGAL TAXIS PETITION
Illegal_taxis_petition_V2 (click here)
The final paragraph of the previous petition referred to an amendment to the Transport Operations (Passenger Transport) Act 1994 to empower the Queensland Police Service to carry out enforcement activities. I have now been advised that it should refer to the Police Powers and Responsibilities Act 2000.
In order to ensure that we are petitioning for the exact actions that we are seeking to achieve, please replace the previous petition with this one.
Unfortunately all signatures collected to date will need to be sought again.
I am deeply sorry for the inconvenience and frustration that I understand this will cause however I do not want to be placed in a position whereby the petition is accepted but cannot be acted upon because the wrong Act of Parliament was cited.
Once again, please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience this has caused.
Given the time already lost, please note the revised close date for signatures as Friday 10 July 2015.
Please return completed sheets to:
Chief Executive Officer
Taxi Council Queensland
PO Box 290
Stones Corner Qld 4120
