"I Believe that the present method of allocating club grants is unfair to clubs and leads to breaches of the Constitution and although my proposal to have the matter fully investigated was narrowly defeated by the Executive last October I feel that I do not speak without authority as I have for the past two years been a member of the Finance Committee.

I now propose:—
1—An immediate investigation into Club needs, particularly in regard to sporting equipment.
2—A revision and codification of the principles on which grants are made.
3—The adoption of an alternative method of allocation consequent upon the findings of the investigation committee.

If re-elected my undertaking is that these things shall be done.
