Your telegram of 28 November. Please give the following private and personal message to your Prime Minister from Mr Churchill:
Am most grateful to you for the indulgence which you have shown us in our extreme need about Hudsons. I can assure you that I have throughout given my personal attention to this question, and it was with great regret that I felt obliged to ask you to defer to the claims of the North-Western Approaches. I will watch the situation constantly with every desire to meet your needs as soon as possible.
1 Viscount Cranborne.
