• The Manchester Transport Training Group's training officer, Mr. Jack Wood, has just issued a report on the body's first six months' activities. Achievements include the establishment of office and classroom facilities, the appointment of three instructors, the launching of training courses for haulage managers and the initiation of plans for training student managers. The latter project has now drawn interest from the University of London, says Mr. Wood.
In the six-month period, well over 100 drivers have been trained to advanced standard, 80 per cent of them to class 1 attic h.g.v. requirements.
• The virtual winding up of the Association of British Motor Manufacturers (not to be confused with the SMMT) has meant a windfall for BEN. Lord Black, a director of the Association, recently handed over to BEN President Lord Rootes cash and securities to the value of nearly £6,500.
