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


2404. For Baruch from Summers:

Your 1693, September 29 [28], my 2369 of October 1. At meeting Maritime Transport Council to-day Secretary Baker definitely committed the United States to fully disclose its shipping programme, its import programme and its programmes of all kinds.1 Understand the President authorized this. Suggest therefore that effort be made to supply information through our programme committees rather than through other sources.
