County Durham gangmaster loses licence
County Durham gangmaster loses licence after ignoring GLA requests.
A County Durham gangmaster that supplied workers to the forestry industry has had his licence revoked after failing to respond to GLA requests despite numerous chances.
Mr Campbell Sinclair the Principal Authority of NE Tree Company based in Ferryhill, was asked to provide evidence that an Additional Licensing Condition had been resolved.
Despite numerous chances to provide this information and warnings that the licence would be revoked if this was not complied with, the information was never provided.
Paul Whitehouse, Chairman of the GLA said: We gave this gangmaster every chance to comply with the law. If that opportunity is not taken we have no choice but to revoke the licence.
