Uber's 'licence suspended by Sheffield City Council'

Share

Uber has had its licence suspended.

A new application for a licence was submitted in October, but the company said that if this was not approved on time it would appeal the suspension from the city.

According to a new report from The Guardian, Uber's license has been suspended by Sheffield city council.

Uber has now submitted an application for a new licence, but under a different name. "The legislation does not allow for the transfer of an operator's licence".

Sheffield City Council has suspended Uber's licence to operate in the city from 18 December after the company failed to respond to requests for information about its management. Uber has applied for a new licence, which the council is apparently in the middle of processing, but claims it's not had issues changing the name on its licences elsewhere in the UK.

Uber said it informed the council on 5 October about its need to change the name on its licence as the individual was due to leave the company.

ITC Confirms Tariffs Against Canadian Softwood Lumber
The United States International Trade Commission has found the importing of Canadian softwood lumber has hurt the USA market. Last week, Canada filed a case at the World Trade Organization in response to Commerce's decision to levy the tariffs.

The city council said the firm can continue to operate until 18 December - and if it chooses to appeal against the decision can run until the appeal is heard.

The American tech company is now fighting a ban in London, where it lost is licence in September.

Uber said that it will appeal the suspension so it can "continue to serve people in Sheffield". The council hasn't suspended the licence for any particular wrongdoing or alleged dodgy practice (which was reportedly partly the case in London).

"We hope this administrative error can be quickly resolved".

"The council told us they couldn't change the name on the licence, as most other councils have done, and that we would instead have to apply for a new one", Uber said in a statement.
