LIMITED IN SCOPE
DEPUTATION TO HOUSE
SMALL NUMBER SUGGESTED
Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. The businessmen's deputation to Parliament, originally announced as a protest against national socialism, has now been, limited in its scope.
Attempts are being made to-day strictly to limit the deputation's size, 24 businessmen and an equal number of trade unionists being suggested as the size of the tation to meet members of the House. The movement, however, appears to have got too far out of hand. Trade unionists are invited by the Federation of Labour to-gather in their thousands and march to Parliament Building with brass bands, while the Waterside Workers' Union advertises that there will be no work on the wharves from 8 a.m. till 11 p.m. on Thursday.
As the deputation wishes to meet Parliament and not the Government alone, it will be received by Mr. Speaker, Mr. Schramm, and there is unlikely to be any formal reply to the representations, except an assurance from the Chair that members will duly consider the matter.
The Dominion Council of Coordinated Business Associations now advertises its desire that representations should be limited to a protest against the nationalisation of the Bank of New Zealand.
