Abstract: Let *G* be a topological group of second category and having cardinality at most that of the continuum. Let **B** be some -algebra of subsets of *G* such that (*G*, **B**) is a measurable group. For a probability measure *P* on (*G*, **B**), write for the measure defined by . The aim of this paper is to prove the following: if on (*G*, **B**) there exists an inner-regular probability measure *P* such that for every , where is some -finite measure on (*G*, **B**), then *G* is locally compact. Further if *S* denotes the -algebra generated by the topology of *G* and *m* denotes a Haar measure on *G*, then for every on the -algebra .
