Melbourne, 20th May, 1914

Dear Sir,

In reply to the telegram from Mr. Costello forwarded by you as follows : - " Ascertain whether old conditions, walking time, camp shifting time, &c, be embodied, and whether Engineer Smith is empowered to fix up matters should our branch decide to accept offer."

I desire to inform you that the old conditions as to walking time and shifting camp will be embodied in the new agreement. With regard to the men at the depot, however, I am informed that a very large number of Commonwealth railway employes would be affected (and not several, as was suggested by you the other day) by the determination, and, therefore, the concession could not, it is regretted, be conceded.

Suggest corrections
