From the Duchy of Lancaster Office (25 January 1924)
25th January 1924
Dear Dr. Polanyi,
Many thanks for your letter. I hope that we shall keep closely in touch with the Middle East, but I doubt whether the Labour Government will set up any information service outside the normal channels which are within the competence of the Government to use and supplement.
Dr. Karl Polanyi
