The Minister in the Netherlands (Van Dyke) to the Secretary of State


365. Your 192. Mediterranean fruits and vegetables are coming to the Netherlands without consignment to Oversea Trust, consequently free for transit to Germany. This arrangement has probably been made in London through the diplomatic channel of countries concerned. The same course is open to us. Holland makes no discriminating duties but will receive our fruit freely if it gets through and will permit transit. No action here needed or possible.
