5070. From Department and FEA for Riefler and Lovitt. If you and MEW agree, Department and FEA suggest that you transmit instructions to Bern that in the event that Swiss offer is not clinched by June 30, Harrison and his British colleague should inform the Swiss that we expect them to observe the ceilings contained in their informal offer of June 15 as from July 1 pending conclusion of agreement based on formal Swiss offer which we understand Bern is to receive this week.
