69 Mr S. M. Bruce, High Commissioner in London, to Prime Minister's Department
Cablegram unnumbered GENEVA, 29 September 1937, 10.52 p.m.
Further meeting of the Advisory Committee held this evening.
Representative of Ecuador proposed immediate declaration of Japan
as aggressor but did not persist in the face of the proposal by
France supported by the United Kingdom that Sub-committee be
appointed to deal with China's appeal. Meeting adjourned until
tomorrow when the Sub-committee will probably be appointed and the
terms of reference to the Sub-committee approved. Present
indications are that Australia will be invited to join the Sub-
committee and unavoidably accept.
