I am directed to inquire on what authority the cable described in the margin - [Cablegram No. 1217, dated 21st May, 1920, to Dirawmat, London, re wool control] - was despatched without having first been submitted to the Prime Minister, seeing that the matter has nothing whatever to do with the sale of the clip, andwas based merely on a newspaper paragraph.

Mr. Hughesconsiders that the matter is outside the scope of the Central Wool Committee's province, and is one purely of Government policy, and that any comments thereon should have been submitted to him for transmission, if deemed necessary.

M.   L. Shepherd,
