own cases, lost their appeals last week to the Transport Tribunal, One of them was Mr. Jack Millet, retail furnisher. 4 Linver Road, London, S.W.6, who appealed against the Metropolitan Licensing Authority's refusal to grant a B licence for a 5-cwt, van at present run under a C licence. He wanted to carry furniture and personal effects within a 20-mile radius.
After Mr. N. L. C. Macaskie, Q.C., acting president, had told him that he had failed to produce evidence of need. Mr. Millet commented that ii. seemed impossible to secure the evidence before the work was done.
The other unsuccessful appellant was Mr. J. St. P. Skidmore, 52 Purcell Street, London, N.1, who appealed against the Metropolitan Licensing Authority's refusal of an A licence for one vehicle to carry goods throughout Great Britain.
