AUCKLAND CARPENTERS

The Mayor of Auckland was waited on ! yesterday by 250 unemployed carpenters, who asked him to try to find some way of providing relief. Mr Parr replied that he realised the seriousness of the situation. but the difficulty was to know just what to do in the case of skilled artisans. It was not hard to find work for pick-ami-shovel men, but unless property owners would go on building there was bound to be a dearth of artisan employment. He would appeal to speculative builders and others to go ahead, and would also ask the Prime Minister for his assistance. The Mayor pointed out that the City Council had already put in hand all possible works. He suggested that the society should appoint a deputation to wait upoii the Citizens' Patriotic Committee at r.oon and place the matter before the business men of the community.
