mINETY-SIX objections-fewer than

usual-to the latest proposals for increases in road haulage workers' wages were considered last week by the Road Haulage Wages Council. An increase of 5s. a week for adult workers, with proportionate advances for juniors, is recommended in R.H.(65), which has now been passed to the Minister of Labour for ratification.

Objections were mainly on the grounds that inflation would be created and that higher wages were not justified by a change in the cost of living.


AN application by Border Engineering Contractors, Ltd., Whitehaven, for a B licence to operate a low-loader was rejected by the Northern Licensing

Authority at Carlisle last week. The company wished to carry for the John Laing concern as required, and plant and machinery within 100 miles of Whitehaven.

A number of witnesses gave evidence of willingness to employ the vehicle, and there were supporting letters, including one from Lord Adams, of the West Cumberland Industrial Development Co.

The objectors claimed that their facilities were adequate. They were the British Transport Commission, Siddle C. Cook, Ltd., and R. Liddle, Ltd. The Authority said that he was not satisfied that the applicants had made out a case.
