§ Commander Courtney
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will seek to negotiate an extension of the present consular arrangements with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics to cities other than Moscow to meet the increasing requirements of British tourists, businessmen, and technicians in other parts of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.126W
§ Mr. Mathew
The establishment of Consular representation outside Moscow would require an agreement with the Soviet Government on reciprocal consular arrangements. We appreciate the importance of the matter and are giving it urgent consideration.
