Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A REPRESENTOR was too late last week to state his case against the renewal of the licence held by Sidney J. Edwards Transport of Leighton Buzzard.

The company won authority to renew its international licence from 30 vehicles and 32 trailers. Representations were received from Mr M. P. Heast and a Mr and Mrs Reginald Gross.

Mr Heast said his representation had been submitted late as he had not seen the advertisement in the local paper. He lived opposite the entrance to the company's premises and he submitted his representation as soon as the application was brought to his notice.

Eastern Deputy Licensing Authority Charles Arnold-Baker said that in view of recent Transport Tribunal decisions, Mr Heast had to show that his representation was late because of exceptional circumstances.

The advertisement was published on August 29 and Mr Heast's representation was received on October 12. He could not see that "not knowing" was enough to be exceptional circumstances within the ruling of the Tribunal.

Anthony Grey, the company's transport manager, said that it leased part of a 2.5 acre site belonging to Truck Link Commercials. Twelve companies occupied the site, four of which operated commercial vehicles. The company's vehicles were mainly engaged on work for Thomas De La Rue. They were equipped with radio control and were on 24-hour call. The work could not be subcontracted for security reasons.
