This annual report describes 1975 as the Corporation's most difficult year, and although British road services, Pickfords removals, heavy haulage, and travel produced record profits, these were more than offset by the heavy loss of national carriers. The report gives a review of the trading operational of each company in the Corporation and blames the losses partly on the economic recession and partly on the burdens transferred from the railway companies to the Corporation at its formation in 1968. Other activities of the Corporation described include its part in environmental conservation and its technical resources. The report contains details of the accounts and supporting statements for the year. In addition to statements of the overall profit and loss the financial results for each subsidiary are presented individually. /TRRL/
