Following for Maloney from Evatt. Your telegram 176. 
1. We have instructed High Commissioner to inform the United
Kingdom Government of receipt of Note from Peoples Commissariat
for Foreign Affairs, that we propose, subject to any comments
which United Kingdom Government may wish to offer, to inform both
Polish and Soviet Governments that we now regard our duties as
Protecting Power as at an end, and finally, that the business
arising out of this representation will be terminated in proper
form as soon as it can be wound up.  It is most important that
you make clear that, animated by a warm admiration for the peoples
of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and Poland alike,
Australia has based its policy in this matter all along on the
desire to promote the common interests of the United Nations.
2. We are also informing both the United Kingdom and United States
Governments that it is to be assumed, in view of all the current
relief questions and cases being dealt with by the Legation, that
it will take time before affairs can be wound up, and that for
administrative convenience close contact may be necessary, even if
informally, between the Legation and the representatives of the
Polish Committee of National Liberation in Moscow.
3. In the circumstances you should formally acknowledge the Soviet
Note, point out Australia's disinterestedness in the matter, but
await further instructions before taking up with the Soviet
Authorities any other questions arising from the new situation.
