The Ambassador in the United Kingdom ( Bingham ) to the Secretary of State

No. 3090

Sir: I have the honor to refer to my despatch No. 3082 of May 27, 1937,1 regarding the International Agreement on sugar, and to forward herewith copy of a Foreign Office note1 pointing out that under the provisions of the protocol annexed to the International Sugar Agreement signed in London on the 6th of May,2 His Majesty’s Government in the United Kingdom were charged with the duty of making all the necessary arrangements for convening the first session of the Provisional Sugar Council. It is understood to be the general wish of the Governments concerned that the Provisional Council should meet as soon as practicable; and, while it is not yet possible to fix an exact date for the meeting, His Majesty’s Government in the United Kingdom propose that it should take place early in July.

The Foreign Office asks to be advised of the names of the United States delegates, and I venture to suggest that the Department’s reply be furnished to this Embassy by cable.3

Respectfully yours,

R. W. Bingham
