Three Power Security Pact
Following is text of message requested. Begins: Please convey to those present an expression of the great satisfaction with which we have become parties to this historic pact. Stop. Your own constant labours did much to produce the result which has I am sure the warm approval of the overwhelming majority of the Australian people. Stop. The Pact is conceived in no spirit of hostility, on the contrary it embodies an enduring spirit of friendship and cooperation. Ends.
