Response
  1. The number of licensed taxi drivers in East Herts that have criminal convictions

We do not hold this information because once the individuals convictions have been considered and a decision made, we do not retain the information.

2. How many people with criminal convictions have been given a taxi licence in 2015, 2014 and 2013.

Granted by licensing sub-committee after consideration of convictions:

2013       Total 4

2014       Total 3

2015       Total 2

Others may have been granted under delegated authority where the conviction policy allowed, for example points on the DVLA drivers licence, but these would not be recorded. See answer to Q1.
