413 Cabinet Sub-Committee on Trade and Employment Minute
Decision 290, CANBERRA, 3 August 1948
MODIFICATION OF OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE OTTAWA AGREEMENT BY THE G.A.T.T.
It was noted that the United Kingdom had recently made informal approaches to conclude the proposed agreements setting out the modification of the Ottawa obligations between the U.K. and Australia caused by the obligations undertaken by the two countries under the G.A.T.T. It was decided that the Inter-Departmental Committee should examine the earlier drafts of the 'Gentlemen's Agreement' and prepare a draft for further consideration by Cabinet Sub-Committee.
