In you letter dated the 10th of this month, you seem to have missed the point I was trying to make completely. While I appreciate the fact that you do not make the law, I agree, you are most certainly responsible for its administration, and in this case I think you are failing rather badly.
The fact that publicity is given to this act in various public places e.g. Post Offices, Railway Stations in this country is of little consequence to me if I'm not in this country. Of course if I'm kicky enough to visit one of the above places within fourteen days of my return well there is no problem. The point I am making is that you should advise New Zealand residents returning to this country the implications of the act.
Until you accept this as a necessary requirement, I must again charge you with poor administration of the law and in view of this, formally advise you that I am not prepared to appear before the conscientious objection committee unless it is as a result of a ballot.
