SCHOONER FOR FISHING
STATE PtJIiCHASE ADVOCATED Parliamentary Reporter. " WELLINGTON, this day. The purchase by the State of the schooner Tagua, at present under charter to the Government, was advocated by Miss Mabel Howard (Govt., Christchurch East), when referring in her Address-in-Reply speech in the House of Representatives yesterday, to the need for improving the Dominion fish supply. Miss Howard suggested that the schooner be purchased and fitted with a freezing chamber so that it could both catch and carry fish. She contended that there was plenty of fish found New Zealand and off the Chatham Islands, and suggested that the Government should take steps to have the waters prospected for fish. As far as Christchurch was con- ; cerned she felt that the installation by the Government of a freezing chamber would break the present distribution monopoly. She favoured distribution through the Internal Marketing Department.
