HANDLING IN LONDON.
(Per Press Association.)
GISBORNE, March 11. At a meeting held at Gisborne early in February. Mr J. Jl. Estill, representing the Port of London Authority, debated with Mr W. D. Lysnar, of Gisborne, on the subject of facilities at London and west of England ports for the handling of New Zealand produce. '
Mr Estill stated that New Zealand meat was being discharged at "olre Royal Victoria Docks by elevators, an 3 by endless conveyors, carrying the me-it under, cover direct to the carts and railway van. Mr Lysnnr challenged this statement, and said the conveyors merely carried the meat to n sorting base in the vicinity of the shin. , Mr Estill challenged Mr Lysnar to 1 cable to the High Commissioner for information oil the-subject, and this Mr Lysnar did straight away. He has now received a cable message from the High Commissioner, through the Prime Minister as follows: — " Please inform Mr Lysnar that there has beep no alteration in the New Zealand Victoria Docks since his visit, but the Port of London Authority lias commenced work in sorting sheds, by which frozen meat will be dealt with'under cover." ' My Lysnar, therefore, claims that Mr Estill misstated the facts, and says this is not the only glaring inaccuracy which has been circulated.
