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

6849. For the Secretary and Under Secretary.30 In carrying out your wishes in your 6157, October 5, 12 midnight, I found that the matter in question had been raised in a War Cabinet meeting shortly after the Prime Minister’s return but that no decisive action had been taken. I asked that it be raised again after receiving your message and although the question was introduced for discussion no decision was reached.

I understand that it will be discussed again this week. I believe my 6266, September 19, 10 p.m. was a correct estimate on the divergent opinions within the Cabinet.
