STABILISATION DEPARTURE P.A. WELLINGTON, this day. The annual conference of the Farmers' Union decided to draw the Government's attention to the inflation caused by the use. of credits created through the Reserve Bank. Another remit, which was adopted, recorded that the conference viewed with alarm the departure from stabilisation instanced by wage increases without any corresponding and immediate increase in the monetary return to primary producers, and urged that steps be taken forthwith to increase meat and other produce prices to counteract those increased costs. It was pointed out that the Government could not expect maximum production unless the primary producers were assured of a reasonable return.
The election of officers resulted as follows:—President, Mr. W. W. Mulholland (Darfield); vice-president overseas, Colonel F. Waite; vicepresidents, Messrs. A. Briscoe Moore (Whangarei),. and K. J. Holyoake (Danrievirke); treasurer, Mr. W. Horrobin (Waikanae). All were re-elected unopposed, Mr. Mulholland for his tenth term.
