Editorial comments:

Time of composition estimated. The speaking note was based on Carrington's telegram 64 of 1200Z, and evidently written before delivery of Luce's statement in the Commons c1535Z. Williams delivered it to Costa Mendez in person, reporting on their meeting in his telegram 91, timed 1644Z. Read other documents selected from the Rattenbach files
