File No. 763.72112/642
The Ambassador in Great Britain ( Page ) to the Secretary of State
[Received 5.20 p. m.]
1512. Your 675, December 3.1 British Government now informs me that the heading “copper unwrought” was intended to include all copper in such form as to render it usable for manufacturing purposes. This description being vague, the former heading will be changed in new lists to read, “copper unwrought and part wrought and copper wire.” This is intended to include copper sheets, circles, slabs, bars, pipes, ingots, scrap, rods, plates, solid-drawn, tubes, etc., and all grades of copper wire. The word copper is deemed to include alloys in which copper is the main ingredient.
