Uber's licence suspended in British city of Sheffield

Uber banned in Sheffield for refusing to answer questions

Uber blamed the council's refusal to let them renew its licence under a new name, and for sending correspondence to a wrong address.

Uber's licence to operate in Sheffield has been suspended after the company failed to answer questions about its management.

"We received a new application, for a licence to operate taxis in Sheffield, from Uber Britannia Limited, on 18 October 2017 which we are now processing".

The app will submit an appeal if the new application can not be resolved by 18 December, he added.

If Uber decides not to appeal, its licence will be formally suspended.

The company chose to appeal the ban and is still running as the appeal process is ongoing.

National Grid (NG) Upgraded by Deutsche Bank to "Hold"
They now have an overweight rating on the stock. (NASDAQ:FB) has "Outperform" rating given on Friday, October 9 by Credit Suisse. Other hedge funds and other institutional investors have also recently added to or reduced their stakes in the company.

It is understood that Uber was already applying for a new licence instead under the name Uber Britannia Limited and that is being considered.

"The legislation does not allow for the transfer of an operator's licence".

Uber previously reached out to Sheffield city council on October 5 letting them know that they needed to change the name on the license because the individual would soon be leaving the company. "We hope this administrative error can be quickly resolved so we can continue serving tens of thousands of riders and drivers in Sheffield".

This is yet another blow to Uber as it struggles to properly deal with authorities. She left Uber after Transport for London (TfL) revoked Uber's operating license in London in September.

October 2016 saw the Central London Employment Tribunal rule in GMB's favour - determining that Uber drivers are not self-employed, but workers entitled to basic workers' rights including holiday pay, a guaranteed minimum wage and an entitlement to breaks. "We submitted an application for a new licence on October 16".

Last month it was revealed that Uber had been the subject of a massive data breach which affected 2.7 million United Kingdom users of its app.
