I am having inquiries made into the matter as promised, but, in fairness to the league, I wish to inform the honorable member that I have received a telegram from the president of the league in Sydney, in which he asserts that the allegation of discrimination by the league in charges for tweed to members and nonmembers is untrue so far "as his State is concerned.
