out(1 standing achievement of "The Commercial Motor" was made by Mr. Roland . E. Dangerfield, managing director of Temple Press Ltd., in an address at the Royal Society of Arts, London, last week.
Speaking on "The Trade and Technical Press," he described how on August 15, 1947, "The Commercial Motor" produced a complete summary of the Transport Act, which had not received the Royal Assent until August 6. The summary comprised about 14,000 words, and a week after its publication in "The Commercial Motor" was on sale as a separate booklet entitled "The Operator's Guide to the Transport Act, 1947." The Guide was published well before the printing of the Act by the Stationery Office. Mr. Dangerfield was speaking on the dependence of trade and industry upon its specialized Press for news and the interpretation of Government Orders. "Probably." he said, "it is no exaggeration to say that without this intermediary assistance between the Government and the ordinary trader, the practical working of controls and so on might well have broken down." Mr. Dangerfield believed that there were over 30 road transport periodicals falling within the definition of trade and technical journals. I4e stressed the absence of waste circulation and the high readership per copy of specialized journals.
