A SOUTHAMPTON scrap dealer appearing in connection with record-keeping offences under Section 69 was given "one more chance" when the South Eastern LA, Maj Gen Elmslie, allowed his application for the renewal of his operator's licence. Mr H. V. McDermott, who runs a scrap haulage business between Southampton and Waltham Chase, explained to the LA that as he could neither read nor write his wife read the details of the Transport Act to him and this had led to a misunderstanding over record keeping.

Mr McDermott maintained his vehicle himself and kept brief records of servicing details in a note book. A vehicle examiner visited Mr McDermott's premises after his vehicle had been issued with a delayed prohibition as a result of a roadside check. The examiner suggested that Mr McDermott enter into a servicing agreement with a garage who could keep his records for him.

The LA emphasized the importance of keeping records of Mr McDermott and allowed his application after hearing that he had entered into a servicing and maintenance agreement with Rose Hill Garages of Bishop's Waltham.
