Uber appeals against loss of London licence – Reuters

A spokesman at the Mayor of London’s office said that Khan, a politician from the opposition Labour Party who is also chairman of TfL, continued to back the licence decision and that all private hire firms must play by the rules.

Uber, whose backers include Goldman Sachs (GS.N) and BlackRock (BLK.N), will defend its London business at a hearing most likely due on Dec. 11, a spokesman at Britain’s Judicial Office told .

Transport for London (TfL) shocked the Silicon Valley firm last month by deeming it unfit to run a taxi service and refusing to renew its licence, citing its approach to reporting serious criminal offences and background checks on drivers.

The filing is a short notification of Uber’s intention to appeal rather than the detailed grounds.
