The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Great Britain (Bingham)
Washington, May 24, 1933—5 p.m.
123. Your despatch 828 April 25. Department has no objection to draft convention but makes following suggestions:
- That scope of convention might be extended to cover any mandated territory under His Majesty’s control without limiting it to mandates exercised by His Majesty’s Government in the United Kingdom.
- Preamble refers to desirability “of amending Article IV” whereas Article I provides “the following provision shall be substituted for Article IV and the second paragraph of Article VI.” It is suggested that reference should be made in preamble to second paragraph of Article VI.
Will full powers be sent British Ambassador?
