Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

Consett, County Durham, sought an A licence from the Northern Licensing Authority, last week, for 16 extra vehicles to share in the growing 'prosperity of the Consett Iron Co., Ltd., for whom he was one of the chief hauliers, Mr. L L. R. Croft, for the British Transport Commission, who objected, pointed out that the application was not supported by the company.

Mr. T. H. C. Wardlaw, for the applicant, said that 10 articulated vehicles and six platform lorries were required. Mr. Cook had had no fleet increase since June, 1955. It was difficult to sub-contract traffic.

Mr. Croft. said that an increase in the number of A-licence vehicles for Mr. Cook would mean that other operators would have fewer return loads.

The Authority reserved his decision. He said that he had been in touch with executives of the Consett Iron Co., Ltd., about fuel rationing and had been told that they had no difficulties concerning road transport for their priority traffic.
