• The Yorkshire Licensing Authority, Maj Gen Sir John Potter, decided to take little action against a Wakefield firm when it was called before him under Section 69 in Leeds on Wednesday. The firm, D. G. Felts, an underlay manufacturer, had been called to the inquiry following an inspection of its vehicle by a DoE vehicle examiner.
The examiner, Mr D. Ellis, said that he visited the home of Mr D. Gibson, proprietor of D. G. Felts, and inspected the vehicle on March 25 this year. The vehicle had several minor defects and an immediate 0V9 was issued. When he asked to see records an exercise was produced in which details of maintenance inspections, defects discovered and work carried ont was recorded.
Mr Gibson, who held an operator's licence authorizing one vehicle and two vehicles to be acquired, told the LA that the vehicle in question had not been in use for some time and had been replaced with one weighing less than 30cwt.
The LA said that under the circumstances he would remove the margin of two vehicles which were not required.
