MR ESTILL'S STATEMENT.
DUNEDIN, March 11
In conversation with a. reporter tonight, Mr'J. H. Estill, Commercial Superintendent of the Port of London Authority, referring to a message from Gisborne on the subject of handling New Zealand meat at the Victoria Docks, said; that in all his speeches he had stated that all New Zealand meat was lifted by electric elevators from the/ship's hold and taken by endless belts to the sorting tables under cover. From the sorting table the meat was. expeditiously taken to insulated .vans, waggons, or barges, practically alongside. He certainly never wished to convey the impression that endless belts worked^ the meat into the vans themselves. The point was that the existence of elevators and endless conveyors for discharging New Zealand meat at the Royal Victoria Docks had been denied. He emphatically stated that these appliances wero used for New Zealand meat. The High Commissioner said there had been no alteration in the method of handling meat since! Mr Lysnar's last visit to England. . There -was no excuse therefore for Mr Lysnar'_s apparent ignorance of these facilities. Mr Lysnar had not to his knowledge previously mentioned the sorting tables.
