Memorandum for the President

[Subject:] British Beef Purchases

We have been informed by Marvin Jones that we will soon have substantial supplies of so-called commercial and utility grades of beef which can be made available to the British. I therefore suggest that when you see the Prime Minister you discuss the possibility of British reduction of purchases from Argentina in the amount that we may be able to allocate from our supplies. It is believed that with supplies that we can make available, a considerable reduction of British meat purchases from Argentina may be entirely feasible.
