(Received December 22, at 9.20 a.m.)
In reply to Mr Massey’s inquiries, the Attorney-General of New South Wales has informed the New Zealand Government that they could have 100,000 bushels of wheat, provided tho New South Wales Government in March next could demand to have that quantity sent back the following July. Mr Hall explained that if New South Wales found she had a shortage, while New Zealand had got 100,000 bushels from her, or from some other part of Australia, the demand for a return would be necessary; but if the New South Wales harvest was larger than expected, she would not demand it back. The New Zealand Government have replied, accepting’these terms, and asking for the wheat to bo sent as quickly as possible.
