Ar Cardiff last week, Mr. R. R. Jackson, the South Wales Licensing Authority, reserved his decision on an application by Hazel Haulage Ltd., of Gold Tops, Newport, for A licences in respect of nine tippers which carry solid fuel for Stephenson and Clarke Ltd. and Corral! and Co. Ltd. to the London area and the south coast. There were seven objectors. A decision was reserved. Mr. M. J. Hazel], director of the applicant firm, said that there had been many requests to carry back loads of scrap metal into South Wales, but this was not possible because of the licence restriction. A grant would be of great service to customers. Supporting the application, Mr. P. D. H. John, of a scrap metal firm in Newport, said it had been impossible to get scrap from the London area and the south coast. The firm had been let down on numerous occasions and it had been a case of customers having to scrounge round for lorries. One of the objectors—Mr. D. Harfoot, a director of S. Harfoot and Sons Ltd., contended that there was not sufficient work to allow licences for this back loading.
