APPEAL TO MINISTERS An emergency meeting of carpentry trainees, held at Parnell this week under the auspices of the Auckland Carpentry Trainees' Association, passed resolutions commending the Government's trainee policy and appealing for a special regulation giving them a priority in timber supply. The resolutions, to be sent to the Minister of Rehabilitation, Mr. Skinner, and tne Minister of Public Works, Mr. Semple, were:— (1) "This emergency meeting of carpentry trainees firmly endorses the Rehabilitation Board's policy of a second year extension course, and we commend the Government in making this possible." (2) "We request the Government, through Order-in-Council, to take all possible steps to ensure an adequate supply of timber to enable the trainee scheme to continue satisfactorily, even to the extent of a temporary over-riding of the zoning regulations."
