Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• A Fife coach company, convicted in July for operating workmen's coaches between Glasgow and Longannet, Fife, without a road service licence, applied to the Scottish Traffic Commissioners on December 22 in Edinburgh for the licence.

The application was by Rennie's Lion and Comfort Coaches Ltd., which is contracted to carry workmen to a power station site at Longannet, and was opposed by Doig's Tours (Greenock) Ltd., which already has a licence for the service.

Mr. John Rennie, a director of Rennie's Coaches, said the company was convicted because fares had been accepted from the men travelling in the coaches. After the conviction the cost of the transport was met by the men's employers, deducting the cost from the men's subsistence and travel allowance. This was a temporary arrangement until the road service licence was applied for.

Judgment was reserved.

Removal variation granted

• A removal firm was granted a B licence variation last week although neither the applicant nor an objector appeared at the hearing in Stockton, Teesside.

Lormor's Removal and Storage Service of Hartlepool, Co. Durham, had applied to substitute an articulated furniture pantechnicon for a 4+-ton rigid van. Smith's Removal and Storage Ltd., of Hartlepool, objected but no reason for their absence was given.
