Mr WHITE (Balaclava) . - I have here a circular letter from the Brighton City Council on the subject of food for Great Britain. I quote the following extract: -

In spite of the admirable voluntary efforts by so many of the public, the council feels that voluntary effort alone is not the best way to deal with so pressing a problem . . . Therefore, it has been decided to press for national action by the Commonwealth Government with the 'request that they urge the Government to make a contribution in food and/or money proportionate to the need, and compatible with Australia's ability, to give generously fur the relief of our British kinsmen.

This is a subject about which -some of us feel deeply.

Suggest corrections
