Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

IT would be three months before the police could proceed with the charges, Supt. J. Davies told Alfreton magistrates last week, when Eric Earls Bamford, former managing director of E. E. Bamford (Contractors), Ltd., appeared before them for a second. time,

Bamford faces charges that on May 9 he stole, as bailee, a Leyland commercial vehicle belonging to the Lombard Banking Corporation, London, and on the same day, with intent to defraud, obtained from a Mr. Allsop a cheque for £550 by means of a false pretence.

When Bamford first appeared before the magistrates, they were told that these were purely holding charges,

because it came to notice that Bamford -411 was about to leave the country. He was connected with investigations of a "very involved and complex nature" which two Scotland Yard officers were conducting.

Bamford was again remanded in custody.

INDIAN EXPANSION HAMPERED INCREASING vehicle taxation and different State Governments' policies of nationalization were hampering the expansion of road transport in India, Mr. L. Harichand, president of the Automobile Manufacturers' Association of India, told the Association's annual meeting in Calcutta.

The success of the motor industry ultimately depended upon quantity production and effective use being made of output capacity, he said. At present, the demand for vehicles was being adversely affected by governmental measures. Indian roads could absorb 50.000 more vehicles a year.
