125 — The Prime Minister of New Zealand to the Prime Minister of Australia
The Prime Minister of New Zealand to the Prime Minister of Australia
The situation as set out in the Secretary of State's telegram of 30 April (No. 123), which has been repeated to you, has now been considered by His Majesty's Government in New Zealand. They are in general agreement with the measures suggested in that telegram, and they propose to act accordingly. Before however advising His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom to that effect they would be grateful to know the views of His Majesty's Government in the Commonwealth of Australia. A very early reply would be appreciated in view of the fact that the convoy is due to sail on 2 May.
