Your telegram No.21. 
We understand that next meeting of Far Eastern Commission will take place on 10th February.
2. We agree with you that everything possible must be done to maintain right of Far Eastern Commission powers to participate in formation of policy and that increasing tendency of United States authorities to take independent action gives cause for concern.
But many complex issues are involved and we should like to consult further with you and other Commonwealth countries represented on F.E.C. as to how we can best proceed.
3. We should hope to be able to let you have our views very soon and we should much appreciate it if you could defer raising question in F.E.C. meanwhile.
