Wheat Acquisition MR. JOHN LYNCH'S VIEWS. COMMONWEALTH'S RESTRICTED POWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 2 February 1915
Wheat Acquisition MR. JOHN LYNCH'S VIEWS. COMMONWEALTH'S RESTRICTED .'POWERS. Mr. John Lynch, Federal member for Werriwa, made the following state ment at the office of the Wheat Acquis ition Board on Friday to MrJ Ashford, Minister for Agriculture. As a practical farmer myself, as well as a man having a little to do with the public life of the country, I feel that riot only was It essential in the interests of the Commonwealth but in the interests of the Empire too, that some central authority should have the power to prevent our very limited amount of foodstuffs in this crisis from being subject to specula tion. "I very much regret that the Com monwealth Government has not the power to take this all-necessary action because from such a central authority j It could have been most effectively car ried out. For instance, had the Com-1 .nonwealth .Government been in a po sition to declare, say, a 0/ price ] throughout Australia for the grower, immediately upon discovering the / quanti...
