David Cameron and senior ministers lobbied against hard working cabbies to get regulations on Uber dropped. Here's my campaign to make sure they get a fair deal.
In March, it became clear that during his time as Prime Minister, David Cameron and other senior figures in his Government had effectively acted as lobbyists for Uber.
In October 2015, the then Mayor, Boris Johnson, proposed a number of measures to update private hire regulations to better reflect Uber's business model. However, it was revealed that David Cameron, George Osborne and high-level officials at No 10 had pressured the Mayor's office, and the proposals were dropped in January 2016.
The week before Easter I met with senior representatives private hire drivers to discuss how I could support their calls for a parliamentary inquiry.
By the following Tuesday though, Theresa May had called a snap election.
There are serious questions for the Government still to answer about the privileged access Uber seem to have been given, and this must not now be swept under the carpet due to the election.
That's why I've written to Theresa May to urge her to investigate exactly what contact there was between senior Government Ministers and the Mayor's office, and why these proposals were dropped.
