His permanent head of the External Affairs Department, Alister McIntosh, was even blunter. 6 The matter was settled remarkably smoothly at a special conference in London in 1949. As the premiers began to arrive, the Republic of Ireland left the Commonwealth on the 18 April. The very next day Lester Pearson, the Canadian Minister for External Affairs (standing in for his prime minister), called at Number 10 to talk with Sir Norman Brook, who was emphatic that India should be allowed to stay in.
Nearly everyone wanted India to stay in. Only in New Zealand was there difficulty about severing the Crown link. Three options were presented by Lord Listowel, Attlee’s emissary to Wellington: India as a member without allegiance to the Crown; as a foreign state in close treaty relations with the Commonwealth; or as a foreign state with no treaty relations. Peter Fraser, the Scots-born New Zealand prime minister (who had once worked as a carpenter in the Houses of Parliament in Westminster) did not want to ‘cheapen the link or weaken the Crown’.

He maintained some British reservations, but said they related to tactics, not general aims.
