A judge has ruled that in considering an appeal against Nottingham City Council's refusal to renew a taxi driver's licence on the ground that he had made a false declaration, justices had to consider whether the false statement was made knowingly or recklessly.

The Times (p37) reports that Mr Justice Tucker so held in the queen's bench division against a decision of Nottingham justices to allow an appeal by Mohammed Farooq against the refusal of the council to renew his licence under s51(1)(a) of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provision) Act 1976.

In considering an appeal against the local authority's decision, the justices should have regard to whether the false statement was made knowingly or recklessly in determining whether the person was a fit and proper person, the judge ruled.
