Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

AFTER an admission of irregularities in the operation of a vehicle under short-term B licence, the North Western Deputy Licensing Authority, Mr. J. R. Lindsay, adjourned an application for a new B licence by Messrs. H. Wood and Sons, Poulton-le-Fylde, at Lytham St. Armes last week.

Mr. 0. Sutton, for the applicants, said they were farmers, market gardeners and nurserymen, and were asking to carry farmers' and market produce from within five miles of base to Sheffield. The application was for one vehicle and the goods involved were tomatoes, lettuce and flowers, which required particular skill.

Mr. L. Wood, one of five partners in the business, admitted that there had been certain irregularities in the use of a short.term licence, granted pending the present application. The conditions allowed the carriage of produce belonging to his firm and two others. The licence had not been properly examined, and in ignorance the firm had carried for 15 other growers as well.

Mr. Wood added that although they had discovered this to be irregular, they had continued to do work for the other growers because they could not let them down.

Mr. Lindsay said the application would be adjourned until the matter had been investigated by enforcement officers.
