Your 749.  World Organisation.
You can give general support to views expressed by Berendsen. 
There are several indications of growing tendency to keep British
Dominions as much as possible in background despite their great
contribution to the war effort. My own view is that it is not too
early even now to get some assurance that Australia as an
important Western Pacific power should be given membership of
proposed Executive body. It was intensely disappointing that we
did not get adequate support in connection with I.L.O. Governing
Body. This may seem premature but as you know our attitude must be
coloured to some extent by the knowledge of what share we are
likely to have in the working of the proposed organisation.
