No Action Taken Against Transport Manager At Public Inquiry
A Transport Manager, represented by barrister Harry Bowyer, had a history of involvement with companies holding Operators’ Licences which had encountered financial difficulties. On this occasion he was the nominated Transport Manager on two applications for Operators’ Licences. As a result of his involvement, the applications had been called into Public Inquiry. There were suspicions that the new companies were attempts at “fronting” or setting up of “phoenix” companies.
Written submissions were submitted by Harry Bowyer well ahead of the Public Inquiry. They set out the previous history of the Transport Manager and his companies. The Deputy Traffic Commissioner, having satisfied himself that there were no “fronting or “phoenix” concerns – both applicants having found themselves a new Transport Manager – stated that he agreed with the written submissions and took no action against the Transport Manager. The Transport Manager was allowed to remain within the industry.
