Dear Sir,

As a candidate for the representation of the East Coast in the coming Parliament I should feel extremely obliged if you would give me some information as to the policy of the Government relative to the following matters which are of vital consequence to the District and upon which I am sure to be questioned during Candidature:

1. In forming direct communication by rail or otherwise between Auckland and Wellington is it intended to include Tauranga in the Route.

2. In making roads through any district will the settlers of that district have preference in performing the work.

3. What do the Government intend doing relative to Te Kooti.

4. Will the system for paying Natives by contract instead of per daily pay be continued in any warlike undertakings.

5. Will the construction of inland roads be at once proceeded with.


I am, Dear Sir, Yours very faithfully,
H. Lufking Keep.
Hon J. Vogel.
