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

1818. In answer to your 1644, March 4, the British have been holding an inter-Departmental meeting all morning but have not reached a final decision in this matter. The chief difficulties involve questions of security. The British are in touch with the Norwegian Government here on the question. Foreign Office hopes that some “compromise” can be worked out and will let me know as soon as possible.

I am sorry I could do no more than to get them to meet this morning and that I can give you no further word for the Norwegian Ambassador in Washington.
