Apparently theres a taxi protest organised by TTnH on the 15th (supported by "all" other groups) drive from the Phoenix Park (the greens wont like that) to the Convention Centre (aka The Dail)

I heard they're demanding subsidies to get more men back to work because there's no work. Bring your wallets anyway....

 This is a position of unions regardless 15th of September.

Our submission to covid19 committee included a heading.
Buy back scheme or allow Transfer of licence. We Prefer buy back which would keep numbers down and when business picks up again they could be reissued.  But that would cost the government money which will be hard to achieve. We are also conscious the only way legally to pass on your licence on to a person of your choice is by death at the moment. We would be off the opinion drivers who bought their licence could transfer a licence if buy back is ruled out This would give "renters" an opportunity to own their own plate and people who are now comprised with health issues or older drivers who want to retire could sell plate to offset costs already incurred.
We would like to enter talks with government keeping in mind we already have to many taxis on the road.
