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

172. From Hawkins and Hickerson. We hope to hand the British Trade Delegation tomorrow a draft Trade Agreement. As regards motion pictures, we intend to state that our proposals will be transmitted at a later date. We have discussed the whole question at various times with the British Delegation but in general terms and for the purpose of emphasizing the great importance which we place on satisfactory treatment for this important American industry. We should be glad to have your views regarding the specific proposals on this subject that should be made for inclusion in the Agreement. [Hawkins and Hickerson.]
