(UP)—The Foreign Office reported today unit preliminary steps toward revision of the Anglo-Russian Alliance as suggested by Premier JoscI atahn were -under active consideration-' in London. Foreign Secretary Ernest Bcvin "undoubtedly" will open personal negotiations on revision of lhe alliance when he ROCS to -Moscow lor lhe Bis Pour meeting on Germany in March, a foreign office spokesman said. Stalin said that strengthening the treaty by the removal of unspecified "reservations" was necessary before the 20-year alliance coma be extended to 50 years. His suggestion was contained in n note to Bcvin. The Russian generalissimo accepted' 'Bcvin's assurances that Britain still regarded the treaty as in effect., contrary to allegations that had emanated from Moscow.

The Soviet premier accepted Bcv- in's assurance that Britain still regarded the treaty in effect. Stalin said Bevin's wetk-okl note of reassurance to him cleared away all his doubts.
