155 Mr A. T. Stirling, External Affairs Officer in London, to Department of External Affairs

Cablegram 48 LONDON, 24 March 1938

Your telegram No. 13. [1] You will now have had Dominions Office
circular telegram No. 75 [2] of 23rd March giving fully the
provisional terms of Prime Minister's statement. Passage in
telegram No.73 [3] which you queried was badly drafted. Obligation
number 2 does not mean an obligation to Czechoslovakia. It is
intended to refer to obligation of United Kingdom Government to
France under treaty of Locarno which might arise as a result of
possible attack on Czechoslovakia.
