PRODUCE CONTAINERS DISPUTE
The president of the New Zealand Council of Commercial Gardeners, Mr. B. V. Cooksley, said to-night that an ultimatum had been delivered by some retailers in Wellington that unless the proposal to extend the charge for containers was drcpped there would be a boycott of produce sales, commencing on Monday. The growers had rejected the ultimatum, and had prepared plans to ensure that if there was a boycott the public would not be penalised. In the event of a hold-up householders would be notified of places where fruit and vegetables could be obtained.
