The British Chargé (Lindsay) to the Secretary of State

No. 51

Sir: With reference to previous correspondence on the subject of the Arms Traffic Convention, I have the honour to inform you that I have received a communication from my Government stating that they propose in the future to inform the Japanese Government whenever they request a non-signatory Power to sign the Convention or to give a guarantee to observe its conditions and whenever they receive notification that a guarantee has been given or the Convention signed.

His Majesty’s Government express the hope that the United States Government will adopt similar measures.

I have [etc.]

R. C. Lindsay
