GOVERNMENT CHARGED FILCHING OP RIGHTS ALLEGED Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. The trend towards centralised control was strenuously opposed by the farming community, declared Mr. K. J. Holyoake (Nat., Pahiatua), in the Address-in-Reply debate in the House of Representatives yesterday. He said it appeared that the Government was setting out to goad the farmer into a rebellious spirit so that they might take unconstitutional action. The Government could go on goading them, but the farmers would remain law-abiding. The farmers believed in private enterprise and ownership. They had rights but the Government had filched them during the whole time it had been in office. Mr. Holyoake also said he wanted to know whether the Minister of Supply would be continued after the war. The Minister of Supply, Mr. Sullivan, retorted: No. The people of New Zealand, continued Mr. Holyoake, especially those in rural districts, were determined ruthlessly to purge the Dominion of the parasitic growth that had been noticeable in the country's life in recent years, and were determined to defeat the dictatorship Of socialism. The National Party's policy was to restore to the farming community the democratic right to own and control its own produce.
