Deputation to Railway Commissioners

Deputation to Railway Commissioners.

Mr Grigg detailed the result of the interview held between a deputation from the Conference and the Railway Commissioners on matters affecting the farming community. He said the deputation had been received in a very kind and business-like manner, and the Commissioners had gone thoroughly into all the matters brought before them. He moved, "That inasmuch as the Committee appointed by this Conference to wait upon the Railway Commissioners with a view to a reduction in freights upon produce finds that such reduction must largely depend upon the funds available for additional rolling stock, this Conference therefore urgently requests the Government to grant the necessary funds as soon as possible."

The motion was seconded by Mr M. C. Orbell, and carried.
