AFTER complaining to the Western Licensing Authority, last week, that he was working long hours and arriving late at market, Mr. E. Warner, of Upper Farm. Aston-on-Carrant, Gloucester, was granted permission to add a container vehicle to his fleet. The vehicle was licensed to carry livestock within 50 miles and to and from Reading. Mr. T. D. Corpe„ for the applicant, said that Mr. Warner's six vehicles were nationalized in 1949. When they were offered for sale under denationalization, he tendered unsuccessfully for them, but was assigned them by the buyers.
The main livestock customers were Cheltenham wholesalers. Eighty per cent. of the applicant's business was in livestock and he claimed that the railways did not provide facilities in the district.
The railways and Messrs. Green Bros. objected.
