DUNEDIN BY-ELECTION COMMENT BY MR. DOIDGE Parliamentary Reporter WELLINGTON, this day. Describing the result of the Dunedin North by-election as a landslide, indicative of the public's protest against the Government's policy of nationalising the Bank of New Zealand and its attitude to the country quota, Mr. Dqidge (Nat., Tauranga) contended in the House of Representatives last night that the Government should go to the country now on those questions, just as the British Government had many times gone to the country when it had proposed legislation for which it had not received,the people's mandate.

"Disastrous Dunedin," from the Government viewpoint, was a triumph for the Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Holland, said Mr. Doidge. Dunedin people did not want political control of banking and they did not want to see the country flooded with "Waimarino" money. The Government should first submit those two policies to the country at a general election and it did not need to wait until next year to do that.
