A N application by Mr. T. A. Milburn.
Gaerwen, Anglesey, to increase the frequency of an express service from the R.A.F. camp. Valley, Anglesey, to Liverpool and Manchester, from fortnightly to once a week, was granted by the North Western Traffic Commissioners at Llandudno last week.
Mr. E. A. Whitehead, for the applicant, said he started the service as a contract-carriage operation its 1949. and was granted an express licence in 1954, following the Victoria Motors decision.
The conditions were one vehicle a fortnight, but because of a change of camp organization, one vehicle had been required every week since the autumn of 1955. Because of various misunderstandings. the variation application was not heard until October, 1956. when, because of alleged irregular weekly operation, it was refused (The Commercial Motor, October 19 and December 14, 1956). British Railways, who could put on trains whenever they liked with a Crosville feeder service, were now abstracting traffic from Mr: Milburn.
Mr. F, Williamson, chairman, said the original licence was granted to cover every occasion when airmen had leave. Although Mr. Milburn's application was 'refusedlast year because of unsatisfactory operatipn previously, the Commissioners would need more compelling evidence to prevent his coming into line.
