• The appointment of a new fleet manager to E. F. Phillips and Sons Ltd, of Parkstone, Dorset. resulted in the company being granted a two-year 0 licence for its 73 vehicles and nine trailers. The licence was granted at Eastbourne on Tuesday by South Eastern LA, Maj-Gen A. F. J. Elmslie.

For Phillips, Mr J. Main said that a record of convictions, prohibitions and inadequate maintenace had resulted in the granting in January, of an interim licence for only six months. Since then, however, considerable improvements had been made. A fleet manager, Mr P. J. Wallington, had been engaged and he had instituted a

properly scheduled maintenance system. This was to be carried out on the firm's own premises with additional facilities available at a local commercial vehicle specialist. New buildings to be completed in December would enable the firm eventually to carry out all its own repairs.

Vehicle examiner Mr P. Haines, said that at a recent visit' no serious defects were found on the vehicles inspected; he confirmed that a considerable improvement had been made during recent months.

While granting the licence, the LA warned that because of the past bad record, a close watch would be kept, in future, on the condition of the firm's vehicles.
