• Ignorance of the law concerning filling in a log book did not prevent a Norwich florist from being granted an 0 licence by the Eastern LA last week. Mr R. Gidney, appearing at a public inquiry in Norwich, was applying for a licence to operate one vehicle to carry flowers from flower fields in Lincolnshire for delivery to different parts of Norwich each day.
Questioned about convictions against him on January 19 in Norwich Mr Gidney said that these arose because of ignorance on his part concerning filling in a log book. He had been convicted for failing to issue a record book to his driver and also for making a false entry. His driver was only 17 and had no licence for driving the vehicle. Mr Gidney said that he had now become acquainted with the necessary knowledge to keep a proper log book.
The licence was granted for one year and provision was made for a traffic examiner to visit Mr Gidney to ensure that records were being correctly kept.
