ORDER OF PRECEDENCE
DECISION BY SPEAKER P.A. WELLINGTON, this day. At the invitation of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Schramm, representatives of the trade union movement this week met Brigadier R. A. Row, organiser for the Dominion Council for the Coordinated Business Associations about the mass demonstration to Parliament to protest against National Socialism and Fascism, to take place next Thursday, said Mr. F. P. Walsh, President of the Wellington Trades' , Council to-night. Trade union representatives were surprised to hear Brigadier Row admit that he was representing a minoritv section and that his organisation did not wish others to take part in the demonstration, especially in view of his published invitation to the public to take part in the demonstration. Mr. Walsh said the union representatives urged that as an overwhelming majority of the citizens of Wellington were opposed to National Socialism and Fascism it was desirable that they be given an opportunity to attend, and also that they should have the right to elect speakers to place before members of Parliament the views of the people on the subject.
Brigadier Row, he added, would not consent, and said his organisation had already appointed three speakers to place its views before Parliament. Mr. Schramm stated that as the representatives of the two sections of the demonstration had not been able to agree, and as both had an equal right to. place their views before Parliament he would first hear the speakers appointed by the D.C.C.8.A., and then the speakers for other sections of the people.
