Position as disclosed in F.E.C.239  and 242  is most
unsatisfactory. I understand you were absent from Washington when
my telegram 1326  arrived. Please take up matter again
personally with State Department emphasizing its importance to
Australia and unsatisfactory nature of their reply. You should
indicate that Australia may find it necessary to raise the matter
in F.E.C. and/or Allied Council for Japan.
Assume you are in close touch with New Zealand and United Kingdom
