THE DAIRY INDUSTRY.

SHIPMENT OF PRODUCTS. USE OF TRANSPORTS SUGGESTED. A deputation representing the dairy ing interests of the Dominion, headed by Mr C. A Wilkinson, M.P , waited upon the Prime Minister on September 2nd with reference to the carriage of dairy produce Home.

Mr A. Morton, President of the National Dairy Association, explained that the New Zealand *•*hipping <"o. and the Shaw, Savill, and Albion Co. had informed them tbat it. would be impossible for them to carry out ibi ir contracts owing to tbe large number of boats that have been taken for transports. The dairy industry asked the Government therefore, that, in taking vessels in the future for transpbrts, the ships with refrigerating space should be left to carry tbe dairy produce. The other point tbey wanted made clear was tbat if the dairy pro duce was delayed in New Zealand the Government should make some sort of indemnity to the banks for advances made on it.

The Prime Minister *. What are you afraid of?

Mr Morton : Well, the banks might be short of cash.

Mr Massey said that bo did not think there was any fear of this. All the bankg in New Zealand were in an exceptionally strong position. The Governtnent recognised the abso'ute necessity of carrying on the country's business, and that Bbips should be available to carry tbe dairy produce Home. He knew that already tbe butter season was starting, but, as tbe result of inquires, he was sure that -the shipping companies tradiDg with New Zealand would be able to supply all the ships required. At any rate the Government, recognising the importance of the matter, would make sure

that tbe ships that were required would be available, if. not by the sb'*ping companies trading to New Zealand then from elsewhere,"
