The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76

Disenfranchisement of Wellington

Disenfranchisement of Wellington.

The question arises whether the time has not arrived when Wellington city and district ought, in the interests of the whole colony, to be disenfranchised, and placed in the same position as the district of Columbia, in the United States of America.

The enormous growth and concentration of the Civil Service in Wellington, and the way that service is being manipulated and coerced in the interests of the present Government, render it necessary that, this step should be taken in order to secure good government, a pure administration of justice, and the real welfare of the civil servants themselves, while the selfishness of the leading men of Wellington, their strenuous efforts to concentrate everything worth having in that city, and to make the whole colony subservient to its interests, show that the time has come when this power should be taken out of their hands.
