Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

THE conduct of an Uxbridge (Middlesex) road haulage firm was criticized by the Metropolitan Licensing Authority, Mr. D. I. R. Muir, when an application for the renewal of a B licence in respect of seven of the firm's vehicles was made in London last week.

At the end of the 25-minute hearing, which was unopposed, Mr. Muir told Mr. Michael Hamilton and Mr. William Bennett, directors of Allpoints Transport Ltd., of Cowley, Uxbridge: "I have considered this application, but you have a very bad record and I am doubtful whether I should renew these licences at all. If I do it will certainly not be for all these vehicles." He reserved his decision.

Earlier the LA had told Mr. Hamilton: "I have had a letter written to me indicating that on renewal 1 will have to take into account the company's conduct, and I have a list of various matters to which I propose to refer:' He then questioned the director about convictions against the company between March, 1964, and July this year.

These ranged from offences of defective brakes and steering to operating vehicles without carriers' licences. Prohibitions had also been placed on company vehicles, of which five had been immediate.

Mr. Hamilton blamed bad maintenance work by fitters employed by the company for the convictions against Allpoints Transport.
