377 Mr A.T. Stirling, External Affairs Officer in London, to Department of External Affairs
Cablegram 668 LONDON, 20 November 1939, 9.35 P.M.
Reference my telegram 639.  Now established that Comparhia Ultramarina de Petroleos is a Portuguese company set up by Oil Concessions Limited. You will doubtless have been advised direct from Lisbon  of the Portuguese decree of 27th October authorising Minister of Colonies  to grant concession to this company.
