SIR C. STATHAM INCLUDED
The Prime Minister (the Hon. M. J. Savage) last evening announced the appointment of fourteen new members of the Legislative Council. In the main the new members have been actively associated with the Labour Party for a number of years, either in the political or industrial field, but a notable exception is the Hon. Sir Charles Statham, who has held the office of Speaker of the House of Representatives since 1923, but did not seek re-election last year. The full list is as follows:— MARK BRIGGS (Palmerston North). THOMAS BRINDLE (Wellington). MICHAEL CONNELLY (Dunedin). JAMES COTTER (Hinuera).
THOMAS FRANCIS DOYLE (Bluff) EDWARD DYE (Waihi).
JAMES GOODALL (Greymouth). GEORGE ROBERT HUNTER (Christchurch).
FRANK EDWIN LARK (Auckland) BERNARD MARTIN (Auckland). RANGI HAWHETE (Awapuni).
JOHN ALEXANDER McCULr LOUGH (Addington).
BENJAMIN CONRAD ROBBINS (Tauranga).
HON. SIR CHARLES ERNEST STATHAM (Wellington).
The new appointments bring the strength of the Legislative Council up to forty, exactly half the strength of the House of Representatives.
