"...I wonder if any of us ever sit down and consider, take it home to ourselves personally, what it means to live even on 50/- a week, and consider further what it means to live on 24/- a week, which is the general rate of wages paid to agricultural workers at the moment. In cases where they are getting 24/- a week they are expected to pay 4/-, 5/- and as much as 6/- a week for a house. The result is that they are living in lean-to's and in sheds..." - Mr Connolly
