HAULAGE contractors who are operating 40-ft.-long trailers are in "a specialized field and need some form of protection," said Mr. G. W. Duncan, deputy Northern Licensing Authority, at a public inquiry which was held in Carlisle last week. "It does not follow," he added, "that someone who buys a 40-ft. trailer is entitled to skim the cream of the business from those who specialize in this field."
Robinson Transport (Carlisle), Ltd., of Newtown Industrial Estate, Carlisle, applied for the variation of an A licence by the addition of one articulated vehicle and three alternative trailers, a lowloader, a platform-trailer and a 40-ft. flat trailer.
The application was granted except for the addition of the 40-ft. trailer, subject to the surrender of a special A licence at present held by the company.
