The New Zealand Government, in giving further consideration to the formation of an Anzac Corps, would like to have your opinion on the implications involved. War Cabinet are particularly concerned about the additional commitment for Corps troops.

While the Government have information concerning the nature and number involved, any additional comments you feel able to give would be welcomed.
