HC Deb 29 March 1897 vol 47 cc1552-3
MR. J. F. HOGAN (Tipperary, Mid)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has now received replies from the Premiers of all the self-governing Colonies; how many have intimated their acceptance of his invitation to be present at the official celebration of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee; and whether he can give a general indication of the subjects of imperial interest on winch it is proposed to invite their opinions and co-operation?


The answers from the Premiers of the self-governing Colonies are still incomplete. I have already stated that no formal conference is intended, although Her Majesty's Government will be glad to have the opinions and co-operation of the Premiers on any matters of common interest.

Forward to
