235 Mr S. M. Bruce, High Commissioner in London, to Mr J. A. Lyons, Prime Minister

Cablegram unnumbered LONDON, 4 August 1938, 5.11 p.m.

Reference Dominions Office cable Circular No. B.185. [1] Proposed
statement by United Kingdom representative is in entire agreement
with statement made on behalf of Australia at Assembly of League
in 1936 and with policy agreed to at the Imperial Conference 1937.

In these circumstances presumably Australia will approve British
proposals and I will be instructed to support them at the meeting
of Assembly. If you agree I suggest a cable to this effect should
be sent to British Government as soon as possible.
