Fresh Markets for Agricultural Produce

Fresh Markets for Agricultural Produce.

The Revising Committee's remarks on this subject were:—"However desirable it may be to open fresh markets for wool and frozen meat, the Committee are of opinion that it would be extremely difficult to do. The question is one perhaps worthy of the consideration of the Conference."

Mr Dunlop moved, "That continuous efforts should be made to extend the markets for our agricultural products, especially wool and frozen meat and dairy produce, and that reports be published thereon as frequently as possible."

Mr Murdoch seconded the motion.

Mr Hall said they would find a very good market in Western Australia, where prices ruled higher than in any of the other colonies. When he was in that colony, some time ago, they were importing potatoes from other countries. He saw New Zealand horses fed there with New Zealand oats, and they had also New Zealand butter. Anyone who knew anything of the climate and soil, and the small amount of rain that fell there, must know that it was necessary that the people of Western Australia must continue to get many products from other countries.

The resolution was agreed to.
