SAN FRANCISCO CHARTER
Your correspondents, Messrs. Frank N. Robson and J. Bradshaw, are rightly concerned lest ratification by Parliament of the clauses of this charter may be concluded before electors are given an opportunity of considering their immediate _ and long-term effects on the Dominion. That such international agreements should be closely examined by all thinking citizens is borne out by the report of the London Chamber of Commerce in respect of the Bretton Woods Conference.' The last sentence of that report reads: "It to the gravamen of the chamber's critrelsm that the International Monetary Fund does, in fact, seek to deprive the nations of their defences whilst failing to remove the perils which called them into use." Surely we should be vigilant and demand that the terms of the charter be announced and time given to electors to consider their implications before ratification takes place. LEONARD KNIGHT.
