The British Ambassador (Lindsay) to the Secretary of State

No. 102

Sir: I have the honour to inform you that in accordance with the recommendation contained in Paragraph 11 of the Final Act of the Whaling Conference of 19372 His Majesty’s Government in the United Kingdom propose that a conference should meet in London during the week beginning June 13th next to study the results of the 1937–1938 whaling season and to consider the modification or extension of the existing Agreement. They would be glad to be informed whether the United States Government would be willing to appoint a representative to such a conference.

Their proposal that the conference should meet in London is prompted by the consideration that it would be the most convenient place from the points of view of His Majesty’s Governments in the United Kingdom and in the Dominions, whereas Oslo, which is the only alternative, is no more convenient than London for any of the other participating countries except Norway.

I have [etc.]

R. C. Lindsay
