[Telegram]

5522. Your 7251, September 25, 4 p.m. You may confirm to British Government impression conveyed by your note that this Government feel they can not properly prevent the rye from reaching Sweden. The arrangement for taking over the wheat for the Belgian Relief was approved by Lord Eustace Percy, and subsequent change of position was most embarrassing. It is hoped the British Government will see their way to granting permit for export of rye to Sweden without delay. Please report by telegraph.
