Cadogan British delegate also was reported to have received instructions to back the Australian proposal Mexico and Poland previously had indi cated they would support the Measure and it was believed Russia and France were ready to 7o along The other delegates while re iuctant to commit themselves in advance were expected to follow the lead of the big powers which tor once seemed to be in agree
