The Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs2 to the Prime Minister of New Zealand
Your telegram of 5 August. His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom are most grateful to the New Zealand Government for their decision to despatch further reinforcements for their Division in the Middle East, in spite of their preoccupations with the defence of New Zealand with which we fully sympathise. We ask you to accept our warm thanks and assure you that this further proof of New Zealand's readiness at all times to co-operate with us is the more highly valued.
Mr. Nash has been informed.
