The Department of State to the British Embassy


The Department of State refers to the British Embassy’s memorandum of February 12, 1945 explaining the manner in which the British Government proposes to account for the lend-lease element in any civilian supplies provided by the United Kingdom to liberated and conquered areas. The Department takes pleasure in confirming that the arrangements which the British Government proposes to adopt are satisfactory to the Government of the United States.

The Department of State is advising the appropriate authorities of the United States Government of the contemplated arrangements in order that the necessary steps may be taken, in cooperation with representatives of the British Government, to work out the detailed procedures for implementing these arrangements.
