150 Curtin to Evatt
Cablegram 20 LONDON, 16 May 1944
IMMEDIATE MOST SECRET AND PERSONAL
For Minister for External Affairs from the Prime Minister.
Reference your No. 88. 
There has been no sacrifice by me of Australia's interests by
endorsing a procedure which deprives her of an effective voice in
anything concerning her interests.
2. As you will see from my separate cablegram to the Acting Prime
Minister on the post-war world settlement , I reserved our
views until the Government could be given an opportunity to
consider the matter and specially emphasised that the procedure
followed should permit of the results of the preliminary and
informal discussions at Washington being the subject of further
consultation between British Commonwealth Governments before any
declaration is published.
