A LTHOUGH there is nothing fundal—t mentally wrong with Lancashire County Council's central vehicle main

tenance unit, which came into operation in April, 1953, there is difficulty in carrying out periodic inspections at set time and mileage intervals.

This is stated in a report to the council on the operation of the unit. Steps should be taken, it is recommended, for drivers to be responsible for as

much routine inspection and minor repair work as they were capable of doing.

There is a backlog of work to be done and uneconomic repairs are being effected. This would, the report says, continue until a firm vehicle-replace

ment programme had been adopted and there was a steady flow of new replacement vehicles.
