PARLIAMENTARY DOINGS. MR. BOSTOCK'S OBSERVATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton, Taggerty and Acheron Express — 12 January 1951

BOSTOCK'S OBSERVATIONS, It appears that the two opposing parties in the House of Representa tives are beginning to reach some agreement on methods to combat the inflation which has threatened Aus' tralia for the last five years, says Mr. W. H. Bostock, M.H.R. for Indi. One encouraging sign, this repre sentative continues, was a speech mnade by Mr. R. J. Clarey, the Labor member for Bendigo, a man of vast trade union experience. In the House he intimated that his opinion was that unionists were fooling themselves if they thought that the country's problems could be solved by curtail ing production.

It is in the interests of the nation as a whole for us to throw our weight into production, regardless of our particular politi...
