NO LABOUXi CANDJDATK
. ■: As the Labour Party was not official-. Jy represented jn the contest for the Bay of Islands seat at the recent General Election,, it is not likely that ' a candidate will be put lip by the party at the forthcoming by-election... In reply to a questioir to-day; the secretary of thorN.e.w 'Zealand Labour Party (Mr,' W. Nash) said; t : h.at- ■ the Labour. Party, would \ not: nominate a candidate unless extraordinary .circumstances arose in the electorate, tho general policy ( ot' tho party being, when elections were, upset through no fault of the candidates, to allow those that were previous)*" in tho field to contest the scat again.
The Dominion .organiser of tho New Zealand Political Reform League (Mr. E. A. James) stated to-day that undoubtedly Mr. Allen Bell, who has represented tho constituency in the House of Representatives since 1922, would be tho official Reform candidate, standing as a straight-out Reformer.
