Text size Aa Aa

(Reuters) – British Prime Minister Theresa May said the London transport regulator’s decision to strip Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] of its licence to operate in the capital was “disproportionate” and has put thousands of jobs at risk, according to a BBC report on Thursday. Regulator Transport for London said last Friday that the U.S.-based taxi firm’s approach and conduct was not fit and proper to hold a private vehicle hire licence and it would not be renewed when it expires on Sept. 30. “I want to see a level playing field. I think a blanket ban is disproportionate,” May said in her interview with the BBC. http://bbc.in/2fv3c52
