THE Controller of Road Transport in Palestine, Mr. Hegerty, has informed the " Palestine Post" that no commercial goods or passenger vehicle imported into the country after June 30 with right-hand drive will be licensed.


" SO many of the established principles of our industrial structure are being undermined by uncertainty, that it is difficult to visualize the shape of things to come.

" One problem strikes close to the heart of our industry—the proposed nationalization of road transport. I put it to you that road transport has been built up through the enterprise and energy of individuals and I question very much whether the millions of electors who voted as they did at the last election realized that, in so doing. they were jeopardizing the future of businesses created and prospered by their fellow men."

These remarks were made by Sir George Kenning, J.P., chairman and managing director of Kennings, Ltd., at the company's annual general meeting. He referred also to the "valiant part" played by the private haulier in helping to win the war. " It would seem that he has been almost too successful to be left alone," commented Sir George.


THAT telegrams protesting against I nationalization of transport have been reaching him at the rate of 30 a day was mentioned by Mr. J. P.M. Mallalieu, 'Labour M.P. for Huddersfield, in a recent speech.

Complaining of this daily deluge, Mr. Mallalieu remarked: " I say nothing about the waste of paper, electricity and Post Office time. I simply say that this sort of organized pressure campaign is something which 1 dislike, and something which has no effect upon my way of thinking and the way I vote."

It was remarkable, be said, to see each morning a pile of telegrams all worded in identically the same terms. "When you find out that a campaign of that kind is being organized," he added, " any sensible M.P. puts these telegrams straight into the wastepaper basket."
