NATIONAL PARTY DECISION

NO BY-ELECTION CONTEST

Lyon,' said the Leader of the Opposition, Mr. S. G. Holland, in a telephone interview with the Hkkald from Christchureh yesterday. He added that the decision had been reached as a mark of respect to Captain Lyon's memory, and bad the support of the National Party both in the Auckland division and in the electorate.

"The party will, however, contest the seat at. the general elections scheduled to take place later this year," Mr. Holland said.
