Sydney, Wednesday

Because the wrappers bore a rubber stamp: impression of the words " Remember Australia Day, July 30, and give freely," Nicholson and Company Limited have been notified by the Postal Department; yesterday, that mail matter, comprising 108 gramophone, lists posted the previous day, required extra postage. It was explained that similar notices were being forwarded to other firms- who- had used the rubber stamp patriotic appeal on their mail matter. . I say that anybody who is sufficiently patriotic to put a rubber stamp appeal on his wrappers ought not to be required to pay extra postage. I think, that this- mat,ter needs only to be- mentioned to insuresteps being taken to prevent a repetition of the occurrence.

Sitting suspended from 6.30 to 7. £5 p.m.
