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

No. 16,738

Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Department’s instruction No. 4142 of June 3, 1944, concerning the facilities in India requested by the United Press. Inquiry of the Foreign Office has been made regarding [Page 301] any further developments on this matter, and the Embassy has been informed that although the India Office has asked the Government of India to examine the question afresh with a view to assisting the United Press no reply from the Government of India as yet has been received in London. The Foreign Office will ask the India Office to press the Government of India for an early statement of its reactions to the re-examination of the problem, and the Embassy will be informed as soon as a reply is received.

Respectfully yours,

For the Ambassador:
Howard Bucknell, Jr.
