Dear Sir, Delay in replying to communication of the 3rd May, 1937, is deeply regretted, but was caused through having to obtain opinions from outside authorities. After serious consideration by our Council, it was finally determined that funds in our trust, and which are under control of a special Act of Parliament, could not be used towards a building fund nor in providing equipment for any hospital. It is therefore unfortunate that the necessary authorisation cannot be extended for the expenditure of the fund as suggested by you Board. Our Act confines us to the amelioration of Returned Soldiers(or their dependants) who enlisted in W.A. Seven documents returned as requested. Yours faithfully S J Smith HON. SECRETARY Presented BS 17/3/38 The Secretary, Road Board, ROEBOURNE. W.A.
