"A NATIONAL CRISIS"
N.Z. HOUSING SHORTAGE
The housing shortage, especially as it concerned returned servicemen, amounted to a national crisis—and in a national crisis British people responded to a call, Mr. D. V. Bryant, of Hamilton, said to-day. Mr. Bryant has been m Auckland approaching people and firms with the idea of creating a foundation fund for the Rehabilitation Civic League so that it will be endowed with funds before it solicits membership fees, and thus be free from financial embarrassment. He said that wherever he went he met with a wonderful reception, and everywhere the Government's undertaking of May 19—that an amendment to the Fair Rents Act would be provided—was much appreciated, because of the opinion that this relief would help the returned men over the housing emergency. He had faith in the private householders' response, provided they were relieved from the Fair Rents Act as far as tenancy was concerned.
