[ Yoshida Shigeru (1878-1967), Japanese Ambassador to the United Kingdom, 1936-8; Sir Robert Henry Clive (1877-1948), British Ambassador to Japan, 1935-7; Ichiro Hatoyama (1883-1959) ]
Publication details: 
Report and minutes both without place and date, but referring to a meeting in London on 22 November 1937.
