SAL­IS­BURY, 15 Novem­ber 1942. — Mr C Rus­sell Ridg­way, Con­troller of Sup­plies, said that South­ern Rhode­sia had been lightly con­sid­ered in the mat­ter of trans­port and those coun­tries which had been bet­ter favoured had re­cently been cut down to 60 per­cent.

The cen­sus was ab­so­lutely nec­es­sary and mer­chants could ex­pect noth­ing un­til the in­for­ma­tion they re­quired was trans­mit­ted to the coun­tries con­cerned, which in­cluded the Union. Mr Ridg­way added that whereas this cen­sus was based on the list of essentials fur­nished by the groups, he could not be­lieve that they would ob­tain all the lines dealt with.

Mr Buck­mas­ter had now been in­stalled to look af­ter their in­ter­ests and he hoped that mer­chants would make full use of this ser­vice.
