Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

TENDERS are invited by the British

Transport Commission for the purchase of 594 transport units and 3,062 vehicles in List No. 2. Tenders must be received by January 25, or, if buildings and land are including in the unit, by February 8.

A copy of the list, which gives locations and brief particulars of all the units, may be obtained from the chief secretary, British Transport Commission, 222 Marylebone Road, London, N.W.1. The envelope must be marked "List No. 2." Anyone wishing to tender for a transport unit in the list must apply by letter to the chief secretary for particulars and conditions of sale, and a form of tender for the unit, the number of which must be given.

Property is offered with 161 units and 433 comprise vehicles only.

To meet criticisms that advertisements announcing the first list were inconspicuous, the Commission are now taking small displayed advertisements instead of classified advertisements. One appears in this issue.


THE hope that British Road Services assets offered for sale in the area would be tendered for, and purchased by, local operators, was expressed by Mr. T. Venn, at the dinner, last week, of the Coventry and Rugby sub-area of the Road Haulage Association. This, he said, would enable close co-operation to be achieved between the various transport interests in the district and would be greatly preferable to the sale of the assets to outsiders.

Mr. V. N. Brailsford, J.P., secretary of Coventry Chamber of Commerce, said that the 1953 Act would enable operators to organize transport services for trade and industry on an economic basis. He appealed to private enterprise to make the most of the Act.


ANEW organization, the Mbbile Radio Users' Association, has been formed to protect the interests of users of v.hf radio equipment, now threatened by the report of the Television Advisory Committee, which the Government have adopted. The report recommended that transmitting Band III (45-120 Mc/s) be cleared for use by television within seven years. Half the users of v.h.f. radio, including road transport operators, use Band III.

Sir Robert Renwick, president of the Association, has stated that the M.R.U.A. require a planned allocation of wavelengths, security of tenure of allotted frequencies, and compensation for the expense involved in changing from a Band III frequency to another.

The secretary of the M.R.U.A. is Mr. Ronald Sims, and the address is Buckingham Court, Buckingham Gate, London, S.W.1.
