Iain Duncan Smith savaged ride sharing app Uber, accusing it of operating an ‘unfair market’ against London’s black cabs.

Talking to LBC’s Andrew Castle the former DWP minister said that the app was not competing on a  a level playing field with London’s black cabs.

“In my view about this is that it is an unfair market. I've talked to a lot of black cab drivers. They are under huge restrictions, they have to have  as special kind of car, they have to have a special space, they have to have disability ramps, they have top be above board, they have to pay all their tax.”

“I think for the most part they are pretty brilliant. The reality is that it is not a fair market , because the Uber lot don't do any of that.”

Earlier in the interview he had issued a strong call on Theresa May to halt cuts to Universal Credit benefits, which you can listen to below.
