• The number of alp trailers on the
licence held by Ebbw Vale-based H Morgan & Sons (Haulage) has been cut from 15 to 11 by South Wales Deputy Licensing Authority Alan Cattell.
In October, South Wales LA John Mervyn Pugh cut the licence authorisation from 15 vehicles and 30 trailers to 11 vehicles and 25 trailers. He also suspended the licence until the company had put its fleet through fresh vehicle tests, and cut the licence duration to expire at the end of the year. The company had been called before the LA following prohibition notices on its vehicles and trailers.
Director Roger Morgan said the whole fleet apart from one nailer had since been through fresh annual tests; the trailer being one that had returned from Manchester to be scrapped. Since the last hearing plans had been agreed for a new workshop and an extra fitter had been employed.
Renewing the licence for 11 vehicles and 11 trailers, Cattell said that the company should take heed of what had happened in the past. He directed that a fleet inspection be carried out by vehicle examiners in six months' time.
