Appeals against the direction of the Auckland Taxicab Control Committee requiring private taxis to operate under a roster system were made to the Metropolitan Licensing Authority yesterday by eight operators in the city and suburbs. Decision was reserved in all cases.

Referring to the direction made under the Transport Control Emergency Regulations, 1942, Mr. Wallace, representing Johnston's Blue Motors, Limited, said it was considered it was an attempt by the control committee to circumvent the policy of the authority. It also meant that private taxi owners would be under the same system which controlled public taxis, and this would interfere with their .businesses, as they could not operate day and night.

Mr. F. Haigh, who appeared for F. G. Wain, F. Laver, S. Davidson, J. P. Reilly and J. L. Turner, said it was never considered that the regulations under which the directions were made should be used to control private taxis. The committee's powers were confined to public taxis.

Mr. Hubble, representing Mrs. J. C. Douglas, said he considered the directions were a "brainwave" on the part of the committee after it had failed to gain control of private taxis by seeking amendments to the terms and conditions under which licenses were issued.
