COUNTRY ELECTORS

REPRESENTATION IN HOUSE PLEA TO PRIME MINISTER Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. The hope that the Prime Minister, Mr. Fraser, would apply the principle of the rights of small nations to the rights of small places when it came to the question of the country quota, was expressed by Mr. J. Acland (Nat., Temuka) speaking in the Address-in-Reply debate in the House of Representatives yesterday afternoon. "I hope that when we have legislation concerning the country quota," said Mr. Acland, "the Prime Minister will fight in the interests of the small places, the small townships and villages, and all the people living in isolated areas. I hope he will fight to see that they get adequate representation in this House, just as he made representations in San Francisco for the good of the people of New Zealand. It is well to remember that if representation at San Francisco had been on a population basis, our Prime Minister would not have been there, and we probably would not have been represented."
