§ MR. J. F. HOGAN (Tipperary, Mid)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any representations have been received from Australasia on the subject of the International Monetary Conference; if so, will he state the purport of such representations; and what steps, if any, have been taken to give them effect?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. SYDNEY BUXTON, Tower Hamlets, Poplar)
Representations have been received from the Agents General to the effect that the Governments of the Australian Colonies desire to be represented at an International Monetary Conference if held; but, as the hon. Member was informed on Monday last by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Her Majesty's Government have received no intimation of an approaching Monetary Conference, and the question, therefore, of any arrangement with reference thereto has not arisen.
