Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A RESOLUTION not to take any further steps to implement the Perry scheme for the unification of operators' , organizations until the status and func

• tions of their own associations under the scheme have been more clearly defined was adopted at a conference of representatives of provincial associations in Yorkshire, Lancashire', ,Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, at Sheffield last Week. Mr. E. P. Shaw, 'vice-president of the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Hauliers' Association, was in the chair.

Chief business was the consideration of the second report recently issued by the Road Transport Organization Joint Conference, which, under the Chairmanship of Lord Perry, has formulated the unification scheme. In discussion, there was strong complaint that the report did not give sufficient information to Association members as to plans for the new national set-up which they were expected to support. The report was described as being altogether too vague.

A point of criticism was that so much secrecy did not conduce to the confidence and good will on the part of operators which should be a foundation for the building up of the National Road Transport Federation and its constituent national associations.

The resolution calling for clarification of the provincial associations' position under the scheme was moved by Mr, G. Picken (Sheffield) and seconded by Mr. E. Nortbfold (Leicester).
