WITH the dissolution of the National ifY Road Transport Federaj ion, the Road Haulage Association is to set up its own joint highways and vehicles committee to continue the activities previously undertaken by two committees of the N.R.T.F. The secretary of this committee will be Mr. George H. Mitchell, who is now R.H.A. committee secretary; he was formerly N.R.T.F. national secretary. Mr. Mitchell will also be secretary of the public relations and rates committees, of the insurance panel (a former N.R.T.F. function) and of the agricultural, heavy haulage and livestock groups. He thus relieves Mr. M. J. Rogers, group secretary, of some of his responsibilities, Mr. Rogers remaining secretary of the bulk liquids, express carriers, -long-distance and clearing house, meat, milk, sugar beet and tipping vehicles groups. (The clearing house group has accepted the tongdistance hauliers group's suggestion that it should be formed into a section of the latter group.)
Mr. R. P. Duffy has become liaison secretary in the secretary-general's department; as well as being secretary of the employers' panel, vehicles security committee, N.P.Y. liaison committee and the area secretaries' conference, Mr. Duffy becomes secretary of the catering and accommodation joint committee which was previously under the wing of the N.R.T.F.
