The Ambassador in Cuba ( Messersmith ) to the Secretary of State
[Received June 6.]
Sir: With further reference to the transitory provision to terminate the moratoria, I have the honor to report that the Constituent Assembly yesterday promulgated the provision, and it is therefore in effect. A copy and translation of the text, as published in the local press, are enclosed.56
Certain last-minute changes have been noted. For example, public service corporations are excluded from the benefits of the provision, except those with a capital of less than 100,000 pesos and which are not subsidiaries of larger companies. Railroads, on the other hand, will enjoy the benefits of the provision.
