420 — Colonel Salmon to the Prime Minister
Colonel Salmon to the Prime Minister
Reference your telegram of 10 March [No. 417]. Comsopac has received preliminary advices but is awaiting papers mailed on 6 March, due here within one week. In the meantime General Harmon is preparing tentative plans to meet your requirements and will be asking General Barrowclough at some near date to come here to discuss them. Admiral Halsey is cognisant of the New Zealand situation, and as he may be absent it is felt there is no necessity for a Minister to come here, but the Admiral's representative may proceed to New Zealand. This message has been repeated to General Barrowclough for his information.
