MR W. D. PEACOCK INTER VIEWED. ' If the Government decline to proceed for libel,' said Mr W. D. Peacock when interviewed upon the matter yesterday, ' then the least they;can do is to obtain a public apology from the person responsible for the promulgation of the reports in' Question. They were unquestionably libellous, and action should certainly be taken to show that such wild and unwarrantable assertions about our fruit industry will not be tolerated. Personally, I am strong in the belief that it is a matter that comes within the province of the , Government to deal with.' ? ? ? - ?'?'?-..

THE MALWA FRUIT. In the course of an interview yesterday Mr W. D. Peacock made reference to the reports received concerning the condition in which the P. and O. Company's liner Malwa had landed her fruit in London.

As a matter of fact, com munications relating to that particular shipment had been received, but no mention was made of any damage it had sustained. In view of that fact ho was of opinion that nothing serious had oc curred.
