IF the merits and circumstances of a case do not
in themselves justify the granting of an A licence, the grant ought not to be made because the applicant has held a B licence in the past. So ruled the Transport Tribunal in a written judgment last week when they dismissed an appeal by Regent Haulage Ltd. against the refusal of a deputy LA to grant it an A licence for two vehicles.
The Tribunal ruling was the converse, they said, of a ruling they made in the case of Clark v British Transport Commission (1962), where they said: "If the merits and circumstances of the case justify the granting of an A licence to a haulier, the grant should not be refused because he has held a B licence in the past."
