Ltd., to-day the Australian Apples and Pears : Council agreed ;to revise the space allotments pre viously made for the forthcoming overseas shipping season. Mr Ross pointed out that the pro posal to pick up only 35,000 cases in Februaiy and 7£0,000 cases in March was wholly inadequate for the Tas manian trade, and he insisted on the quantities being raised respectively to 150,000 and 1,250,000 cases. Members of the Council endeav ored to persuade Mr Ross to' com promise on the.
