We cannot wait for implementation of the Maud Report. Voluntary regroupings between municipal operators and the National Bus Company should be actively encouraged now."

That is one of the opinions which Leicester's general manager, Leslie Smith, will urge upon authorities and operators when he speaks at CM's Fleet Management Conference at the London Hilton on September 1 7. And Mr Smith has some pertinent things to say about the need for action to replace talk in the urban planning sphere: the development of car park/bus station interchanges; the installation of modern bus control equipment—and a dozen other main points.

Three other papers—two on fleet engineering and one on new management techniques in transport—will be presented at the one-day conference. And the likelihood that carriers' licensing is to be totally abolished gives new importance tc the debate between two lawyers on how operators should react to their new licensing freedoms under the Transport Act.
