Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A MAJOR licensing battle is being waged over proposals by Midland Fox (formerly Midland Red East) that the "area stop sign" restrictions protecting Leicester City Transport be lifted.

The East Midland Traffic Commissioners are being asked to confirm short-term grants to Midland Fox of service revisions and the removal of the area stop sign.

Leicester fears the effect on revenue and has lodged a series of applications to increase its competitivness with Midland Fox over other routes.

Transport general manager Geoffrey Hilditch said that the area stop sign system had been introduced in 1932 and its existence over the years had resulted in the success of the undertaking. Leicester offered a lavish service with quality vehicles and a high degree of realiability at some of the lowest municipal fares in the country.
