Health Officer has recommended that all shipping from Australian ports to New Zealand should be entirely prohibited, and this recommendation lias been approved by me. I regret that this course has become necessary, but, in in% opinion, it is one safeguard that can be employed at the present time. Almost every' Vessel now arriving in the Dominion from Austra- "■» lia shows the necessity for precautions, and* until matters assume a safer stage - in Australia no other course, it appears* to me, is open to New Zealand but to ..take the action that is now taken.
