MONEY TO BRITAIN

TO AID RECONSTRUCTION

DESIRE OF SOCIETIES IN N.Z. P.A. WELLINGTON, Tuesday. "It is known that a number of societies and organisations, such as religious bodies and lodges, wish to remit moneys to their kindred organisations in the United Kingdom for relief and reconstruction purposes, said the Minister of Finance, Mr. Nash, to-day. "The Government fully understands the desire of these bodies to assist in this way, and will do all it reasonably can to facilitate such remittances.

"While the oversea funds position at present is favourable, the Dominion nevertheless has to face the huge task of post-war reconstruction, including renewal of depleted stocks, and for this purpose the demands on our oversea resources will be heavy. It is still necessary, therefore, to conserve pur oversea funds to the greatest possible extent.

"The total sum which the various organisations desire to remit to the United Kingdom may well be more than the Dominion can afford to expend for this purpose and, in order that the size of the problem may be appreciated, it is asked that societies and organisations advise the secretary, National Patriotic Fund Board, not later than September 14 of the amount they wish to remit to their kindred organisations in the United Kingdom before March 31, 1946, for relief and reconstruction purposes. No public collections are to be allowed for this purpose, and the moneys it is desired to remit must be derived from the organisations' funds or from donations from members of the organisations. As this information is required merely to provide a purvey of the position, no moneys should be forwarded with the advice to the board.

"Until the size of the problem can be assessed, no undertaking can be given that all or any of the remittances will be allowed, but those concerned may accept my assurance that the Government will deal as sympathetically with the problem as practicable."
