The Produce Export Trade.

The Gisborne County Farmers' Union adopted the following report on Saturday regarding freights :—The good efforts of the Government in subsidising the New Zealand and South African Steamship line of steamers, trading between New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, and West of i England ports, is deserving of the. best < thanks of the farming community. But i experience has shown that the extremely long time (about ninety days) which this ! line takes in delivering produce in the West of England is prohibitive, and consaquently it; is necessary that some better facilities should be found. The Committee, therefore, suggests: — (a) That the (Government should subsidise a more direct line to England, providing such line carries frozen produce for the same freights as Australia pays, and leaves at regular interrals, and delivers the cargo in England within not snore than forty-two days after leaving New Zealand ports ; (b^ and further, that'the time haa arrived for the Government to take steps towards the establishment of adequate cold storage accommodation in London, for frozen produce arriving from New Zealand, so thar, ;sales can be regulated to suit the demands of the Home market?, as it often happens that large shipments of produce arrive in London from all ports of the world about the same, time, .and, owing to there not "being sufficient storage accommodation, the produce has to ,ba forced upon the market, often at considerable loss to the producer.
