Student body not attacked

Student body not attacked

A letter from a Member of Parliament:


What was said by Opposition speakers following me in the debate yesterday (4 Sept.) was so grossly unfair and misleading that I hasten to assure you I have not attacked or denigrated the Student Body in New Zealand.

On the contrary, I think an inspection of Hansards will indicate (without being starry-eyed or unrealistic about our frailties), a warm support for young people.

In case there should be any further misleading reports from the debate I enclose copy of my Hansard.

Best wishes to Salient.

H. L. Pickering.

Mr Pickering's Hansard report may he seen at the Students' Association office.
