asked the Prime Minister if he will state how many chambers of commerce have up to the present condemned the Declaration of London; and how many have pronounced in favour of it?
The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. McKinnon Wood)
I am not in a position to give the information desired. I may, however, say 259 that forty chambers have forwarded to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs resolutions criticising or objecting to various points in the Declaration.
Have any chambers sent resolutions in favour of the Declaration, and, if so, how many?
Will that be represented to the Colonial Premiers at the Conference which is now sitting?
