HE suitability of rail transport for I wet hides was questioned in the appeals of the London, Midland and Scottish, and London and North Eastern Railway companies against the grant by the North-Western Licensing Authority of an A licence to Mr. J. T. Dunnett, of Warrington, Lancashire.

During the basic year he operated one vehicle substantially for the transport of wet hides. He suggested that rail transport was not suitable for this class of goods, but the railways showed that they had been, and were still, carrying this comModity without diffictilty.

The Authority granted a licence for a vehicle in possession and another to be acquired, because the applicant showed an extension of his existing business and it was a special class of ivork requiring specific. vehicles. In the Tribunal's opinion, the railways prOved that facilities would be in excess of requirements if an additional vehicle were authorized.Thu appeals were allowed without' costs. .
