The Ambassador in Great Britain (Page) to the Secretary of State


2730. Your 2038, August 30, and my 2723, 31st.2 Foreign Office informs me unofficially that as this matter is so closely connected with [Page 231] whole question of permits for shipping goods of German origin from neutral ports, now under discussion by British Government and about which French Government is also being consulted, they cannot give an answer concerning this point alone but hope to make a statement as to whole matter at a later date.
