Mr POLLARD (BALLAARAT, VICTORIA) - Will the right honorable gentleman inform the House as to whether, prior to receiving from Sir Gilbert Dyett a letter informing him that, in the opinion of the Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League of Australia, a select committee was not necessary to deal with anomalies under the Repatriation Act, he as Prime Minister sought an opinion from any of the State branches of the Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League of Australia?


Mr MENZIES - I did not.


Mr WHITE - With reference to the letter which the Prime Minister has received from the Federal President of the Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League of Australia expressing the opinion that an inquiry into anomalies in the Repatriation Act is quite unnecessary, has the right honorable gentleman received letters expressing a contrary opinion from branches of the Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League of Australia, including the Wentworth Falls, Katoomba, Blue Mountains and Cresswell State Sanatorium branches?


Mr MENZIES - I have no recollection of seeing any letters from those branches; If I have received them I shall lay them on the table.


Mr WHITE - I can give all of them to the right honorable gentleman.


Mr MENZIES - I should sooner receive them myself.
