Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• .1 haulage firm which left its Lancashire operating centre without notifying the Traffic Area Office claimed that an application to move had been lost in the post.

Rober Hird, representing Delldeck—which holds a licence at Bury authorising four vehicles and four trailers—conceded that it could no longer use its authorised operating centre but said the application to change must have gone astray.

The firm had been called before North Western Deputy Traffic Commissioner John Levin bemuse of concerns over maintenance and finance.

Levin said a vehicle examiner had reported that he had been unable to see anybody or any vehicles at the firm's old site.

Transport manager Michael Bunkell said he had become a director in December but had no knowledge of the company's previous history. Most of the company's work was in the North-East and there was an outstanding licence application in that area. However, they were hoping to obtain a contract u) move shale from Burnley 1(1 Stoke-on-Trent, said Bunkell.

Financial evidence was heard in private at the company's request and Levin commented that finances appeared to be all right.

The DTC added that the company was in a state of suspended animation until the Burnley application was re-advertised and he had a vehicle examiner's report.
