505 Mr A. T. Stirling, External Affairs Officer in London, to Department of External Affairs
Cablegram 437 LONDON, 14 June 1941
Polish Consul General. High Commissioner's  telegram No. 400  for Prime Minister. 
I went this morning to see Counsellor of Polish Embassy and told him of considerations set out in latter part of your telegram No.
260.  I think his Government had deliberately selected Canberra rather than Sydney for he said that functions of the new Consul- General would be political as much as commercial, Polish Government wanted Consulate to be in close touch with the Commonwealth Government, and to that end they were appointing a really good career man.
Dr. Kulski appreciated point that no consulates had been established at Canberra and after some discussion and study of the map said he was sure Polish Government would take view that Sydney was the most appropriate place.
