Campaign Against Rising Prices (N.Z.)

CARP

CARP started in Auckland in 1966 and in Wellington in Feb 1967. The Wellington Housewives Association decided to open up their monthly meeting to the public after the announcement of the original min-budget which cut food subsidies among other things had aroused a great deal of opposition and concern among housewives. HWA was not able or willing to organise a campaign around prices and some of those present formed an interim committee; a public meeting was called and the CARP committee was set up in Wellington. The first effective president was Mrs Anne Turner. At the end of 1969 Mrs Cath Kelly became president. Later Mrs Kelly became secretary and presidents were Mrs K Cook, Mrs A Rodger and Mrs L McCaffley. Over the years the importance of the weekly shopping basket was a feature; and enforcement and extension of consumer legislation was a major concentration. The only two branches that kasted for any length of time were in Auckland and Wellington.
