NEW ZEALAND
Mandated Territory of Western Samoa. The Department expressed
the desire to obtain, if possible, a copy of the opinion of the Crown
law officers which was furnished to the New Zealand Government.
This matter was taken up informally with the Foreign Office and I
regret to have to report that the appropriate officials there state that
it will be impossible for them to furnish the Embassy with a copy of
the Memorandum. It was stated that this Memorandum is one of a
strictly confidential nature for interdepartmental use only, and that
it would be contrary to all their practice and precedents to give us a
copy. The refusal was made, needless to say, with expressions of
regret.
  Respectfully yours,                       For the Ambassador:
                                            HERSCHEL V. JOHNSON
                                            Counselor of Embassy
