Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• "That's fair enough," said an owner-driver as his 0 licence was suspended for three months by the South Wales LA. Mr Ronald R. Jackson, at Cardiff on Friday.

Mr Herbert Wynford Sweet, of Harris Avenue, Llanrumney, Cardiff, summoned before the LA under Section 69 of the 1968 Transport Act, agreed that his sole vehicle suffered an immediate prohibition at a roadside check on May 4.

Defects included an inefficient handbrake, a worn tyre and a loose steering arm.

Mr Sweet admitted that the vehicle had been authorized on an operator's licence only a few months previously and that he had failed to fulfil the undertaking he had then made. He was hoping to acquire a new vehicle in a few months time but he needed to get some capital behind him first.

Mr Jackson: "Is there any reason why I should not revoke this licence?"

Mr Sweet: "No sir, none at all; I have learned my lesson."

Mr Jackson: "You have been very frank and honest about this but I must impose some penalty. I won't revoke your licence but I shall suspend it for three months."

J. and H. in Wales

• With British Railways and BRS having withdrawn their objections to an application by J. and H. Transport Group Ltd for two articulated trailers on A licence, it was granted unopposed by the S. Wales LA, Mr R. R. Jackson, on Friday.
