Mr. Gardiner:

It was not Americans who asked us who want to ship cheese into the United States. We asked them for the right. We raised objection to the United States trying to keep it out and it was the New Zealanders who asked us for the right to send this cheese in here. If we had taken The same position with regard to them as the .Americans are accused of taking with regard to us, they would have made the same criticism of our actions as we make of the Americans.
