Central Wool Committee, 113 William Street,

Melbourne,11th June, 1920

The Secretary,

Prime Minister's Department,


Adverting to your memorandum of 7th June, with reference to Cablegram No. 1217, dated 21.5.20 addressed by the Central Wool Committee to Dirawmat, London, by direction, I have to say that such cablegram was forwarded on the authority of the Central Wool Committee.

The Central Wool Committee forward all matters which they consider of interest to the wool authorities in London, and as the only information which the Central Wool Committee had on the proposed scheme was that appearing in the public newspapers, they cabled the press statement.

J.   M. Balfour,


I have laid all the papers on the table, and they will appear in the Hansard re port of my speech. Thus they will become public property, and honorable members and their fellow citizens can peruse them at their leisure. That, for the time being, at any rate, closes an incident which is much to be regretted.
