nESPITE a submission by the British " Transport Commission that no business existed, Mr. J. H. E. Randolph, Yorkshire Deputy Licensing Authority, last week allowed Mr. C. F. Wadsworth. South Milford, to take over a B licence of Mr. P. Jackson.
The business transferred included one vehicle carrying lard, bacon and offal for the Yorkshire Farmers' bacon factory at Sherbern-in-Elmet within a radius of 40 miles. He had paid £200 for the vehicle and £80 for goodwill.
Mr. Jackson, who said that he had held a B licence for 23 years, explained that the work involved split toads to wholesale grocery warehouses all over Yorkshire, and was unsuitable for the B.T.C. He had an accident last June and the vehicle had since been idle. Up to that time it had earned £80-£100 a month.
He agreed that the work had diminished because some of it had been transferred to Malton during alterations at the Sherbern-in-Elmet factory, but it would eventually increase.
Mr. Randolph was satisfied that the vehicle had been used regularly up to the time of the accident and that there had been a fair return.
