LARGE SURPLUS NOT HELD Great Britain had ample cold storage facilities to handle all the meat from the Argentine and the Dominions, said Mr. A. G. Brown, general manager of the Auckland Farmers' Freezing Co., when the report was referred to him. He characterised Mr. Benjamin's allegations as "absurd."

Dealing with the statement that there was a surplus of lamb which would have to remain in New Zealand until 1946, Mr. Brown said that there was no "must" about it. Great Britain had the shipping and might empty the stores in three months. The surplus existed in 'Mr. Benjamin's imagination alone and Britain wduld take twice the supply if it were available.

There was a certain amount of meat stored in New Zealand awaiting shipment to Britain and there was a certain amount being held at the request of the U.S. Joint Purchasing Board, but it was quite ] [ wrong for anyone to suggest that the Biitish Government was holding a large surplus in New Zealand, over and above her requirements. Mr. Brown added that he knew of most of th° neople in the meat trade in the United States but he had never heard of Mr. Benjamin.
