Power of Authority to deal with errant licensees
111H.
—(1)  If the Authority is satisfied that any licensee —
(a)
has contravened any relevant provision of this Act, any term or condition of the licensee’s licence or any code of practice, standard of performance or direction issued by the Authority under this Part;
(b)
has failed to secure the compliance by any of the licensee’s employees, agents or contractors (including the persons to whom the licensee has leased taxis in connection with the operation of the taxi service) with any provision, term, condition, code of practice, standard of performance or direction referred to in paragraph (a); or
(c)
has otherwise failed to provide a satisfactory taxi service in respect of safety, continuity, regularity of operation, frequency, punctuality, reasonableness of charges or general efficiency,
the Authority may, subject to the provisions of this section —
(i)
issue such written order to the licensee as it considers requisite for the purpose of securing the compliance by the licensee or any of the licensee’s employees, agents or contractors (including the persons to whom the licensee has leased taxis in connection with the operation of the taxi service) with the provision, term, condition, code of practice or standard of performance or direction referred to in paragraph (a);
(ii)
require the licensee to pay to the Authority, within a specified period, a financial penalty of such amount not exceeding $100,000 as the Authority thinks fit; or
(iii)
suspend (for not more than 3 months) or cancel the licence being held by the licensee in whole or in part.
[1/2003]
(2)  The Authority must, before issuing any written order under subsection (1)(i), requiring payment of any financial penalty under subsection (1)(ii), or suspending or cancelling a licence under subsection (1)(iii), give notice to a licensee —
(a)
stating that the Authority intends to issue the written order, require payment of the financial penalty, or suspend or cancel the licence; and
(b)
requiring the licensee to show cause within such time as may be specified in the notice, why the Authority should not impose the written order, require payment of the financial penalty, or suspend or cancel the licence.
(3)  If the licensee —
(a)
fails to show cause within the period of time given to him to do so or such extended period of time as the Authority may allow; or
(b)
fails to show sufficient cause,
the Authority shall give notice in writing to the licensee of the date the written order takes effect, the date by which the financial penalty must be paid, or the date the suspension or cancellation of the licence takes effect, as the case may be.
