AN applicant who tried to jump the road-rail fence was last week refused a B licence by Mr. 3. A. T. Hanlon, Northern Licensing Authority. He was Mr. Gerald Campling, a railway fireman, of West Hartlepool, who applied for a B licence to carry building materials and hardware within 50 miles of West Hartlepool.
If the application had been granted he would have surrendered a C licence for a lorry to carry materials for a road to his smallholding and scrap from cars which he broke up there.
Mr. J. L. R. Croft, for British Railways and British Road Services, said it would be a kindness to refuse the application. Unless Mr. Carnpling took business from other hauliers he could not make as good a living as he earned as a railway fireman.
Mr. Hanlon commented: "I think you would find yourself in very serious difficulties. It is not easy to keep a lorry on the road in good trim and make a living out of the very limited scope you could have in the haulage industry."
