Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Hucknall.based Gedling Plant Hire's licence has been suspended for a month to allow a dispute between mother and son over the control of the company to be resolved.

Gedling had been called to a disciplinary inquiry before North Eastern Deputy Traffic Commissioner H Anthony Richardson following an unsatisfactory maintenance record—the company's transport manager died in June 1992 and had not been replaced. Vehicle examiner Alastair Farrell said one delayed and three immediate prohibitions had been imposed on the company's two vehicles since December.

Director David Souls said that since the death of his father he had been responsible for the whole of the company's operations. He passed the CPC exam, but he had been advised not to become transport manager or put money into the company until the problems over control had been sorted out. He was in dispute with his mother, but he thought they had reached an agreement.

Maintenance had suffered because not enough money was available, said Souls, who added this was now sorted out. Souls agreed the company had moved its operating centre without authority. He said the original premises was being sold, which would enable his mother to repay the money to the company his father had taken out.

Suspending the licence, Richardson said that he was unhappy about anything being on the road until the situation was sorted out. The company must apply for authority to use its new operating centre, and nominate a new transport manager before the end of the month.
