DOMINION PROPOSAL REPLY TO BRITISH COMMENT Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. The Minister of Finance, Mr. Nash, gave a reply in the House of Representatives this morning to the statement cabled on behalf of certain British tyre manufacturers that they had not been consulted regarding the proposal to manufacture motor tyres in New Zealand.

The matter was raised in an urgent question from Mr. Oram (Nat., Manawatu). Mr. Nash replied that in the ten minutes available since he received the question he had not been able to collect all the facts, but he could say that the Government was approached over the matter in 1937, and again in the. following year, when proposals were placed before the Government.

Mr. Poison (Nat., Stratford): By whom? Mr. Nash: A British company, and others, too. In 1939, he continued, the Bureau of Industries called for applications for licenses to manufacture tyres in New Zealand, and advertised that fact. The obvious thing would be that tyre distributors in New Zealand would inform all their manufacturers. The Dominions Office in 1944 notified one English company of the proposal, and he could not imagine the British authorities discriminating in favour of one company alone. The matter was discussed when he was in London in 1939, and again by the Minister of Supply when he visited London this year. "I could say in regard to two of the companies mentioned in the cable,", concluded Mr. Nash, "that they have never done any business in the Dominion."
