183 Mr J. A. Lyons, Prime Minister, to Mr Torao Wakamatsu, Japanese Consul-General in Sydney
I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of 5th
April, 19381, in relation to the subject of iron ore.
The various points which you have brought under notice are
receiving the most careful consideration of the Commonwealth
Government, and will form the subject of a further communication
which will be addressed to you at the earliest possible date.
