Parliamentary Reporter . WELLINGTON, this day. The conviction that the reduction of New Zealand forces and the return of men to agriculture would provide a welcome opportunity for single men held on appeal on farms to fulfil their military obligations was expressed! in the House of Representatives to-day by Mr. Poison (Nat., Stratford). Most of those young men, he said, felt keenly about the matter and thought that, because they were retained while others were fighting, they were looked at more or less askance by their neighbours and fellow citizens. The farming industry had a larger proportion of single men held on appeal than any other industry in New Zealand, said Mr. Poison, and they had been held because they were irreplacable. He was sure the Dominion was to do its best both in fighting and in production, which was so badly needed overseas. Mr. Poison suggested that an arrangement should be made between the New Zealand Government and the British and United States authorities for food to be supplied to Britain and Europe by the United States in proportion to that supplied by New Zealand to the United States forces in the North Pacific. By that means, he said, the use of shipping could be economised enormously, and he thought that was an important first step to take in connection with the drive for increased production.
