AN EXPORTER of antique's appeal against the East Midland Traffic area's decision not to issue a second interim Operators licence has been turned down this week.
Colin Johnson, trading as Glenton Antiques, told the Transport Tribunal he did not have access to business records and so did not realise that the first interim 0licence was issued on the understanding that he passed his CPC.
Tribunal president George Sqibb was told by Mr Johnson that he had grandfather rights up to the end of 1979 but did not realise he could not claim after that date.
He did, however, ask for special consideration as his partner was now in prison and his business was in jeopardy because of the decision.
The Tribunal replied that EEC laws had to be complied with and he could not hold an 0-licence until he passed his CPC.
