THE Transport Tribunal last week heard Mr. R. M. Yorke describe an appeal as similiar in every way except size to the recent appeal by the Mid-Southern Tipping Group, whom Mr. Yorke represented last month. On this occasion he was again appearing for the appellants, Transport Holding Company (BRS), appealing against a decision of the Yorkshire deputy Licensing Authority. A written decision will be given. The respondents—A. Gunson, J. Drury (Haulage) Ltd., J. D. Hodgson and Jr. A. Gunson—had been granted variations to the conditions on their separate B licences which read: "To carry goods for and on behalf of Marshland Forwarding Co. to and through the port of Goole within 100 miles." There were five tippers and four flats involved in the application. Mr. Yorke said that Marshland Forwarding Co. was formed by the respondents to do work for themselves, with each member holding equal shares. He claimed that at the hearing they had not produced any evidence of need. One customer witness indicated that he could not get tippers readily in Goole and had advised the LA that there was no storage accommodation available at the port. The objectors at the hearing were British Railways and British Road Services. Mr. H. G. Hall, for the respondents, informed the Tribunal that BRS did not operate tippers in that area. He further suggested that the schedule produced by BRS, rather than providing availability of vehicles, demonstrated a need for additional flats in the area.
