259 Commonwealth Government to Cranborne
Cablegram 207 CANBERRA, 26 August 1944
Your D1080  and subsequent telegrams. 
1. Australian Government accepts the proposal for an early British Commonwealth conference on civil aviation at the official level.
2. United States Government by a Note  delivered to the Australian Minister at Washington has asked the Australian Government to furnish information concerning our tentative plans for International air routes. We propose to reply that we are not in a position to supply Australian plans and that we would prefer to have these discussed at the United Nations conference it is proposed to hold later this year. Before doing so we would appreciate your comments.
