Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

PlE three largest heavy-haulage operators on Tees-side, Siddle C. Cook, Ltd., Messrs. Sunter Bros., and A. Stevens and Co. (Haulage), Ltd., are challenging a statement by British Road Services that they have special-type vehicles available in the area to deal with the great in steel traffic.

The boom has resulted in a series of applications to Mr. J. A. T. Hanlon, Northern Licensing Authority, for additional vehicles, and the legal representatives of the companies have written to the Authority asking for a public inquiry to ascertain whether special-type vehicles have been moved into the area without permission.

The independent operators believe that B.R.S. originally had no suitable vehicles available.

In The Commercial Motor dated January 15 it was reported that Dorman Long (Steel), Ltd., had made arrangements with B.R.S. to overcome transport difficulties with existing licensed Vehicles. This was revealed before Mr. Hanlon during the hearing of an application by Freeman, Volkers and Stuart, Ltd.
