Subject: Exclusive dealing and third line forcing (s47)

Dear Sir/Madam

Please be aware of the Exclusive dealing and third line forcing (s47) of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission that does prohibit forcing any taxi driver regardless of whether they are bailee or bailor, to be compelled to accept Cabcharge as a method of payment for any taxi fare.

This is supported by the ruling of the Australian Competition Tribunal (Matter No - 3 of 2005 Australian Competition Tribunal).

I trust, you will and have advised your compliance section and other relevant departments that there is no need and no basis to question or penalise any drivers should it eventuate that they may have declined to accept Cabcharge for any payment for any fare.

With thanks.

Sincerely yours

Faruque Ahmed
