Large 'Smalls' Variations Sought in Met. Area
If you've noticed an error in this article please click here to report it so we can fix it.
'THE Metropolitan Area " As and Ds" I contains the largest application to be notified this week. Atlas Express Ltd. seek the variation of an A licence by the addition of no less than eight vans, at a total unladen weight of 24 tons, with wide conditions. They ask to carry " general goods, mainly smalls, normally within 25 miles and on trunk services to company's other depots ". The words " mainly " and "normally" will, no doubt, catch the L.A.'s eye and require some explanation.
From the Northern area comes a new B licence application from B.C.G. Haulage and Spreading Contractors Ltd., of Hexham, for seven unspecified (as to type) vehicles. The company asks to be restricted to the carriage of " goods " for two named customers.
East Midland operators will, no doubt, show some interest in an application by A. McDonald (Haulage) Ltd., of Markfield (Leicester), to switch five vehicles from contract A licence working. The applicants, apparently, wish to carry "goods " • for the T. Simpson group of companies.

• Contract-to-A Switch
TN making an application for A licences I to replace contract A licences for seven vehicles, W. Finch and Co. Ltd., of Great Bookhann, Surrey, wanted to remove a 20-year-old point of uncertainty, said Mr. A. W. Balne, the company's counsel, to the Metropolitan deputy Licensing Authority on Monday.
Mr. Balne said that under the contract the company carries goods for Neil and Spencer Ltd., of Leatherhead, manufacturers of dry cleaning and laundry machinery. Sometimes, to make room for new machinery at purchasers' premises, Neil and Spencer arrange to remove the old machinery. This came under the contract A licence while the old machinery was taken back to Leatherhead either for' reconditioningor destruction, but it was a different matter when the company buying a new machine sold the old one to someone else.
Finch and Co. had been carrying for Neil and Spencer for 20 years and Mr. Balne thought the licences should have been A ticences and not contract A. If the application were granted, the company would surrender B licences for two trucks because it believed it could incorporate that work under the A licences. Finch and Co. would not carry any more traffic for hire and reward.
Granting the application, Mr. C. J. Macdonald said he did not think these vehicles were going to break into any other venture judging from the amount of work they were doing at the present time. If the work was maintained for the main customer he thought they could hardly do anybody any harm. Of return loads, he did not think the danger to the objectors was very real.
