VIEWS ON DOMINION
Impressions Of Australian Visitor PUBLICITY URGENTLY NEEDED Rec. 12.30 p.m. SYDNEY, this day. More Australian publicity is urgently needed in New Zealand said Mr. E. K. White, a member of the Federal executive of the Liberal party, who has returned to Australia after visits to both„..the North and South Islands. Mr. White's impressions during his tour included: New Zealanders show a "certain resigned acceptance" of many Socialistic and bureaucratic controls:. The Government has done its best to see that returned servicemen get a fair and
generous deal. Nationalisation of banking and industry is just as "hot" a subject as in Australia: Food is more plentiful than in Australia, a hotel meal costing 2/6 in New Zealand would cost 5/ to 6/ in Australia. Many good quality houses are being built, but builders claim they could have erected them far more cheaply by private enterprise: Houses are rented from the Government and a sense of security resulting from persona] ownership is lacking: New Zealand is "bitten with the same tariff bug" as Australia, importing the absolute minimum of goods and exporting the maximum output of primary products.
