Location: 3 Mountjoy Square. Private meeting.
The ASSOCIATE MINISTER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS presented his Report which was proposed for adoption by the ASSISTANT MINISTER FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT.
B. O'HIGGINS (Clare, West) seconded.
J. MAC DONAGH (Tipperary, North) suggested to the Associate Minister for Foreign Affairs that it would be good work to make efforts to defeat the English Mission which had been sent to the United States of America to obtain postponement of the payment of Interest on America's Loan to England.
The PRESIDENT had no doubt there would be a considerable campaign in America against postponement. Their friends could point out that England was using American money to oppress Ireland, but they dare not attempt to tell America what she should do. There was also a big movement starting to get Americans to take their money out of British finance and put it into American investments.
The Report was adopted unanimously.
