Commonwealth War Cabinet has carefully Considered Circular M.341.
 Its views are in brief that the disadvantages set out in paragraphs 4 to 7 do not to our mind offset the possible effect of refusal on Russia and Russian morale. Further, the reasoning of telegram M.341 seems to us unconvincing and could not be justified publicly. These views as to Russian position are naturally influenced by the latest information as to the Russian military situation.
2. In short, the Government is of the opinion, and it is supported by representatives of all Parties in Advisory War Council , that a refusal to accede to request of Russia to declare war on Finland, Roumania and Hungary may well be disastrous to Russian morale and be dangerous to our own.
3. Subject to any pronounced American reaction, our view is that all the considerations should be put frankly to Stalin who is a realist and our decision governed by his attitude.
