The LSB has issued a notice, referred to as a “warning notice” under Paragraph 21(1)(b) of Schedule 4 to the Act, in respect of the BSB’s application to alter its regulatory arrangements concerning aspects of the Cab Rank Rule. The notice has been given because the LSB is considering whether to refuse the application. The LSB may now invite advice from other parties and has a period of up to 18 months from Friday 20 January 2011 to reach a decision.”
