The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 79

Return Cargo

Return Cargo.

Cotton goods, iron, steel, hardware and numerous lines of goods, wares and merchan- page 17 dise, will no doubt have to be imported for some years. We could, if necessary, use our own ships for mails and cargo, and, as the employment difficulty would be completely solved by State competition, the returning ships would be loaded mainly with immigrants, who would be required, and who would be of more service and profit to the Dominion than needless cargoes of foreign manufacture. New Zealand could support a population of many millions, but not under the private profit system, as we would then have a repetition of all the horrors of poverty that disgrace the old world.
