Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• The authorisation on the licence held by Jivecity, trading as Horizon Transport, has been cut from five vehicles and eight trailers to two vehicles and two trailers by North Western Licensing Authority Martin Albu.

The company, based at the Burscough Industrial Estate, near Ormskirk, was granted a licence last August after trans port manager Anthony Westwood was able to satisfy concerns about his activities as a director of the failed company, Burscough-based Ibulage Techniques.

Albu said that following the granting of the licence, a cheque for the licence fees bounced— this was bemuse of a misunderstanding with the bank. However, the main reason the company was before him was because it was not using the operating centre it had nominated.

Westwood said the company had an arrangement with the owner of the original operating centre. That company then moved to Skelmersdale without a great deal of warning and he had to find a new operating centre at the last minute. He asked his wife to apply for the new operating centre, but she did not do the necessary paperwork. They moved into the new operating centre in October.

After the LA had said that a vehicle examiner had not been satisfied with the company's maintenance arrangements, Westwood said the vehicle examiner had said that having a freelance fitter was OK for one vehicle, but as they were authorised for five vehicles the arrangements might become unsuitable. The company now had a contract with I3GR Commercials.

The LA pointed out that the DVLAs records showed the one vehicle in possession belonged to Haulage Techniques. Westwood said the DVLA had been told that the vehicle was owned by Jivecity. The registration document showed that it was and he would fax the document to the traffic area.

Cutting the licence, Albu said he was not happy about the way Jivecity had been operated.
