SUPPLIES FOR DOMINION PROSPECTS OF IMPROVEMENT •Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. There was a shortage of 1,500,000 tons of sugar for supply to the Allied Nations, said the Minister of Supply, Mr. Sullivan, in the House of Representatives this morning, when making an immediate reply to a notice of question by Mr. Broadfoot (Nat., Waitomo), who suggested that sugar was in over supply in Fiji. Mr. Sullivan said that all the sugar supplies of the Empire were pooled and allocations were made by the Food Council in London. New Zealand had been making the greatest possible effort for some time to try and get additional quantities of sugar from the pool, but had not succeeded. There was a possibility towards the end of the present year of the position improving.
