65 Critchley to Department of External Affairs
Cablegram K66 BATAVIA, 14 February 1948, 2.53 a.m.
My telegram K.65. 
My immediately following telegram gives Netherlands communique in fall. 
2. The Official Government spokesman speaking as a reliable Dutch source con-firmed delay had been caused in negotiations by publication of statement but said it would not be right to say that Netherlands would not continue negotiations. 3. Vredenburch will leave in the morning for discussions at The Hague. He will attend the Cabinet meeting on Monday.
4. A full scale attack is being launched against the Committee.
This may be designed to [drive the]  Committee out of Indonesia but it is more likely to be aimed at prejudicing Committee's case in Security Council and particularly at preventing any expansion of the Committee's functions.
