544 Pyman to Burton
Minute CANBERRA, 25 August 1947
1. Attached summary  provides an interesting picture of developments in British Solomon Islands.
2. It is suggested that presence of Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations  gives us an opportunity to follow up the matter of recent native trouble in the area. At least we might seek detailed information on causes of present disorder and suggested remedies. We have definite and direct interest in so far as (a) trouble could spread to our own Solomon Islands territories
