'CONDITIONS ARE FRIGHTFUL.' j COMPLAINT TO AUCKLAND M.P. URGENT QUESTION IN HOUSE. (By Telegraph.—Parliamentary Reporter.) WELLINGTON, this day. Allegations that exceptionally bad working and living conditions exist at the Government relief camps for single men in the Auckland province are contained in a letter which Mr. M. J. Savage, M.P., received to-day from Mr. 0. F. Rabbidge, secretary of the Mount Albert Unemployed Relief Association. " One particular example," states the writer, is the camp situated at Ramarama, in the Pukekohe district. The conditions are frightful, and the .sanitation of the camp is a disgrace to the officials responsible. These facts may be verified by Mr. Martin, Auckland secretary of the Alliance of Labour." Mr. Savage, by way of an urgent question in the House of Representatives, will this afternoon ask the Minister of Public, Works, the Rt. Hon. J. G. Coates, to have immediate inquiries made into living and working conditions at relief i works camps.
