Will you and Durand 2 go into the whole question of pork products imports into England from the United States with the English Food Controller with view to developing for us some kind of a positive programme month by month from now until the end of [Page 551] September. It is necessary for us to know this in order to arrange conservation, storage and inland transportation. We are not particular if they find difficulty in giving any concise position if they will give us their minimum and their maximum monthly requirements for shipment from the United States as from April 1.
