• The application by Robert Miller (Contractors) Ltd., of Bridge of Weir, for an A licence for two artics was granted. at Glasgow on Monday. It was said in court that this was traffic which no one else wanted.

The traffic involved the carrying of leather industry by-products from Scotland to the English Midlands where the industry was now concentrated. Previously the process work had been done in Edinburgh, it was said, but the chemical firm which took this material closed down last year

and transferred the work to a larger English associate.

Miller admitted, through its representative, Mr. James Law, that it had been using its A-licensed vehicles on this English traffic; Mr. Law said he advised the firm to re-declare its normal user in April 1969 and it had done so.

• When Mr. John Miller, director, was asked about paper deliveries, he said that he had been asked by Edward Collins of Glasgow, to deliver to Manchester, By agreement with British Railways it would restrict its paper carrying to Edward Collins and to Manchester. On this agreement BR withdrew its objection.

Granting the application, Mr. A. B. Birnie, the LA, said that there had been a breach of normal user but he also had to consider the needs of the customers and the public. There should have been re-declaration in 1968 when the changing pattern developed, he said, but as no one had been hurt and no one else wanted the work, and in the interests of the customers and the public, he granted the application.
