IT is understood that some progress I has been made in facilitating liaison between the Road Haulage Association and the National Association of Furniture Warehousemen and • Removers. The need has arisen because hauliers who occasionally handle household removals are not eligible for dumbership of the N.A.F.W.R.. whilst an agreement between the two Associations precludes the R.H.A. from forming a removers' group.

Two meetings on the subject have been held between the two organizations —the last on July 6—but no further meeting has been fixed.
