• The Transport Tribunal has upheld the decision of the Eastern LA to restrict the 0 licence of B. H. King and Son Transport Ltd to 40 vehicles and 16 trailers.
B. H. King.had previously been operating 51 vehicles and 19 trailers and its 0-licence application had sought to add an extra 11 vehicles and 16 trailers during the next three years.
The Tribunal thought it unlikely that should the grant be increased it would be matched by a corresponding immediate improvement in the maintenance facilities and arrangements.
