Documents Relating to New Zealand's Participation in the Second World War 1939–45: Volume III
157 — The High Commissioner for New Zealand (London) to the Prime Minister2
A Pacific War Council meeting this evening was called to discuss the matter dealt with in my telegram [No. 155] and the Australian modifications thereon, but in the meantime a message had been received from the United States of America containing suggestions which affect considerably the matter referred to above. These suggestions will be considered at a meeting on Thursday afternoon. Members of the Council were specifically requested by the Prime Minister not to refer to the suggestions from the United States of America until after Thursday's meeting.
