Some of Australia’s biggest companies and organisations have joined forces in an ambitious push to have one million electric cars on the road by 2027.
The companies, which include the Woolworths Group, Microsoft, IKEA, AGL Energy and Linfox, have flagged the goal in response to the federal government’s release of a discussion paper on EVs in September.
The Victorian Liberal Party have announced that they intend to scrap the Commercial Passenger Trip Levy which was introduced in 2018 to compensate taxi and hire car licence owners after deregulating the industry.
Rod Barton MP is calling on Matthew Guy to reverse this decision and commit all revenue raised from the levy collection in the next term to be paid to taxi and hire car licence holders.
A compensation package for taxi licence holders worth half a billion dollars is in tatters after a backbench revolt forced the government to go back to the drawing board in an attempt to find extra money for drivers whose investments have been junked. The Daily Telegraph can reveal that a raft of government MPs blew up in a party room meeting on Tuesday, demanding taxi licence holders get fair compensation for the impact of rideshare companies like Uber on the industry.
