Adelaide Mail (Newspaper) - September 2, 1933, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia fruitless search for flood victim plans for North hotly criticised Cabinet accused of political window dressing doubt if British capital can be influenced South australian pastoralist particularly those holding leases in the Northern territory Are becom ing highly critical of the Way in which the Federal government is handling the big development plans. Suspicion is growing that the government is not serious in its intentions. The View was expressed today that All the propaganda issued in the past 12 months has been no More than political window dressing. Doubt is expressed whether the government can influence British capital for the development of the North of Australia without serious political repercussions. It k urged that More sympathetic treat ment should be Given to the present lessees and if the North is ready to be developed the government should take into its Confidence men Wiio can give them the necessary practical advice. This week the Federal government by a Gazette announcement locked away from settlement until further notice an area of More than 230,000 Square Miles of the Northern territory. All notifications of lands available for pastoral lease have been cancelled. The Northern territory is the largest piece of undeveloped country in the world and if we do not do something with it we will be told to get a move on said the minister for the Interior sir. Per Kins in Sydney. Referring today to tie Federal govern ment s proposal to dispose of the Northern territory to a chartered company. Major Lewis a member of the Council of the Northern territory pastoral lessees association expressed doubt As to the out come. Doubtful interest does the Federal min try really imagine that it will be Able to interest British capital or is it just a political stunt to satisfy the country that the government is trying to do something with this vast area he asked. Can anyone imagine a British financier enter Taining the thought of investing capital in a tropical and sub tropical country without the Aid of cheap coloured labor the Federal ministry says that it will reduce tariffs and give Many concessions to encourage the British investor but it is not sympathetic to existing lessees. Time and again the lessees have asked for some say in the management of the Terri tory and have suggested an enquiry com Mittee on the lines of the Wool enquiry committee to investigate pastoral leases and the development of the norths the Only reply they have received is that while the government welcomes advice from those in a position to offer it. And tin fact intends to seek such advice it does not think that the appointment of the suggested committee would be justified at present. This year a committee has been appointed by the minister for the Interior to report on the manner in which lease holders Are complying with the conditions imposed. But this committee As usual comprises officials from the department of the Interior few of whom have had any practical pastoral experience. Waste of Money this is an example of what is being done. It has been decided to put cattle dips at Lucadee bore and Kelly Well. This is an absolute waste of Money. Cattle even if tick infested shed their ticks As they leave the territory and get into the drier country. Cattle have been coming South along the Telegraph line for 40 years and have never done any harm to South australian herds. A few years ago lessees were offered an Extension of their leases if they agreed to a resumption of a portion of their holdings at different periods. Practically All the lessees converted their eases and the resumption will v take Slace in 1935. But As two years notice Bas to be Given All lessees have been advised of the parts that the minister for the Interior has decided to resume. To lose Homestead one Lessee has been notified that he must lose the portion of his property on which is situated his Best Well and an other is to lose that portion containing his Homestead. Plans for the development of the North Are vital to South Australia but there is a doubt whether the govern ment is going to Honor its Promise to Complete the trans continent a railway from Alice Springs to Bardum or to ask the proposed chartered company to do this. Major Lewis Hopes that the Federal government is successful in banding the North of Australia to a chartered com Pany because he believes that most Les sees would be glad to get Cut simply because they do not know what is going to happen to them nest. It is doubtful whether the Federal government can pass an act to hand Over the North to a chartered company he said. The labor party would oppose it. And the country party would maintain that if the government can take off the Tariff for the North it can do the same for the rest of Australia. If the Federal parliament did acquiesce there is still the likelihood of another party coming into Power in a few Seafe time and How would the chartered com Pany fare then i understand that the Western austra Lian government was asked to hand Over the a Northern portion of its state but has declined to do so. Instead of helping lessees the Federal government is Hinderine them. Thev Are being embarrassed in every was possible. Is it because there is not one Man in the Federal Cabinet experienced in pastoral matters air service effect Canberra. Saturday the in Neura Tion of the Anglo australian air service next Vear is expected in ministerial circles to attract overseas attention to North Australia particularly As the new North Australia Nolick of the Federal government is linked with the Ottawa agreement which restricts the development of the chilled beef Industry in South America. The Commonwealth policy for the development of the North by private Enterprise has been carried a sted further by the Issue of a statement by the rime minister or. Lyons indicating that the govern ment is Willins to consider a proposal Foi developing sections of North Australia As a Commonwealth proposition. This offer is made to attract the Inte rest of the Ireat Anglo australian Eold pros pectin organisation recently formed to Chart from the air aur Ferous areas of Western Australia.
