Cablegram UN802 NEW YORK, 26 November 1946, 1.24 a.m.
Your UNY.395 and 404. 
1. Immediate action has been taken to gain support by diplomatic
means. This will be sustained.
2. In Sub-Committee discussions we have not yielded and will not
yield an inch of ground without instructions.
3. We feel there may have been some misunderstanding about
procedure. Australian initiative and consistent action have been
largely responsible for preventing the sub-committee from slipping
into incorrect procedure of formal amendment. The Australian
delegation has also given full support to New Zealand throughout
and has repeatedly intervened to assist New Zealand and, on
occasions, saved the situation.
4. Your message of 25th to Berendsen  was immediately conveyed
to him and, in our opinion, was most timely and should have a
valuable effect. Both on 23rd, with respect to words 'as an
integral part', and on 25th, in discussion of Article 5, New
Zealand delegation offered compromises in matters not considered
essential to New Zealand.  The result, as you point out, must
inevitably be increased pressure and an embarrassment for all
mandatories. This has been strongly represented to New Zealand
officials at sub-committee meetings 23rd and 25th and in
consultations 24th, and will be discussed further with Berendsen.
