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

3874. Embassy’s 2993, April 30, 8 p.m. Within the past few days we again impressed on Foreign Office the importance and urgency of providing United Press with adequate teletype telegraphic service in India. Foreign Office regrets that there has been so much delay in this matter. Its urgency Foreign Office says has been impressed personally on the Viceroy and Foreign Office has been assured that matter is under consideration by the Government of India. Foreign Office adds that it appears however that the question is a complicated one and while it will continue to press for a reply it fears that some further time may elapse before definite answer is received.
