Empire State Building
New York 1, N.Y.
URGENT
9th May 1948

My dear Bunche,

May I refer you to your letter of the 6th May with which you enclosed a copy of an agreement concerning Postal Services in Palestine which has been entered into between the Palestine Commission and Haifa Chamber of Shipping subject to the approval of the Bureau of the Universal Postal Union.

2. I am now in a position to furnish the Commission with the views of His Majesty’s Government in this matter, but as it has not yet been possible to obtain the views of the Government of Palestine, I must make it clear that the observations set out in this letter are subject to correction in the light of any views which the Government of Palestine may express. Having regard, however, to your request that the Commission would be grateful for our views not later than Monday the 10th May, I am sending you now this interim report.

3. I will communicate to you any additional observations Government of Palestine may wish to make as soon as they are received.

4. I am sending a copy of this letter to Mr. Finn Moe, Rapporteur of the Sub-Committee of the First Committee of the First Committee of the General Assembly.


Yours sincerely,
(signed)
(J. Fletcher-Cooke)

Dr. Ralph J. Bunche
Principal Secretary to the United Nation
Commission on Palestine,
