1012. My French colleague informs me his Government is now ready to accept Gibraltar solution for Laval and British Chargé is so informing his Government. I have authorized him to say that our Government is also prepared to accept this solution (Department’s 733, May 4, 7 p.m.). If British Government accepts, Bowker will make arrangements with British authorities at Gibraltar.
