157 Mr M. MacDonald, U.K. Secretary of State for ominion Affairs, to Mr J. A. Lyons, Prime Minister

Circular Cablegram B78 LONDON, 23 March 1938, 10.33 p.m.


Following for Prime Minister:-

My telegram Circular B. 73 [1], penultimate paragraph.

It will be seen from my circular telegram B. 75 [2] of today that
the Prime Minister in his statement tomorrow proposes to say that
His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom have been glad to
take note of the definite assurances given by the German
Government in regard to Czechoslovakia and will render every help
in their power towards the solution of questions likely to cause
difficulty between the German and Czechoslovakian Governments. It
is our intention to continue using all our influence with
Czechoslovakian Government to produce a direct settlement with the
Sudeten Deutsch and, as my circular telegram B. 73 shows, we
propose to urge a similar attitude on the French Government.
