Documents Relating to New Zealand's Participation in the Second World War 1939–45: Volume III
159 — The Prime Minister of New Zealand to the High Commissioner for New Zealand (London)1
Your telegram of 12 March. We have not so far received the message from Mr Churchill to which you refer, and we do not feel ourselves in a position properly to discuss the plan until we are in possession of the detailed proposals which we assume we will receive in due course. We can say at once, however, that we warmly welcome and generally endorse the suggestions, which appear to us to mark an important step forward in the direction of unity of command and efficient association of the United Nations in the Pacific. We do think, however, that Great Britain should be represented on the proposed Council.
