Much obliged for your message in your telegram No. 112 [2] October

House of Commons here in the afternoon of Wednesday November 2nd.

I should speak early probably between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. and should
hope in the course of my speech to refer to your telegram No. 106.

procedure confidential for the time being.

1 This cablegram was sent through the U.K. Dominions Secretary.

2 '112' should read '113'. See Document 309.
