HC Deb 21 December 1915 vol 77 cc190-1
50. Mr. DENMAN

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the share taken by the oversea Dominions in the various theatres of war, of the Imperial problems that arise in its conduct, and of the importance to all the Dominions of the policy governing the ultimate peace, he will include within the Cabinet, without increasing its numbers, representatives of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa?


I do not think that the proposal contained in my hon. Friend's question is practicable, but my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies has already intimated to the Dominions that they will be consulted in connection with the terms of peace and that His Majesty's Government would warmly welcome any of the Prime Ministers who could find it convenient to come here to discuss with them fully and frankly the problems referred to.
