That letter demands a. very searching inquiry and an adequate explanation. It indicates that the department was used to render service to a partisan organization. If any indiscretion is attributable to the officer concerned, he should be appropriately dealt with. He cannot claim ignorance of what was behind the request of the Emergency Committee, as the communication states that the services of the youth were required during the "forthcoming election ". . It may be claimed that the official, in a desire to provide employment for this lad, was prepared to use the services ofthe department. That was quite unnecessary, as he could have advised the Emergency Committee to get in touch with the Legacy Club direct.

Mr R GREEN (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - What was that letter in answer to?
