486 Mr S. M. Bruce, High Commissioner in London, to Mr R. G. Menzies, Prime Minister
Cablegram 390  LONDON, 4 June 1941
FOR PRIME MINISTER
Polish Government has approached me with regard to Polish Minister for Foreign Affairs'  request to you of 11th March for the establishment of a Polish Consulate-General in Australia. He states that his Government have established Consulate-General in Canada and more recently fin] South Africa and New Zealand and now wish to appoint to the post of Consulate-General in Canberra (sic) an official 'de carriere' with diplomatic experience as soon as consent of Australian Government is forthcoming.
I was under the impression that there was already a Polish Consulate-General in Sydney (E.A. Consular List for 1941) but presumably the present occupant  is not a career man.
I told Raczynski  I would telegraph you and ascertain present position.
