HC Deb 30 June 1921 vol 143 c2323
26. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Prime Minister how it is pro posed to inform the House of Commons of the results of, and conclusions arrived at, the Imperial Conference now sitting; whether an agreed report of the proceedings will be issued; and, in particular, whether he will make a statement of the Government's decision with regard to the renewal or otherwise of the Anglo-Japanese alliance?


The Conference itself will decide what part of its proceedings shall be published. The House will be informed of the Government's decision in regard to the Anglo-Japanese Treaty as soon as it is possible to make a statement upon the subject.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

Are we to be given an opportunity of discussing this matter?


I would prefer that such a question should be put to the Leader of the House.

Commander BELLAIRS

May we be quite certain that the House will not be faced with anything like an accomplished fact?


The House will be kept fully informed of the progress of events. This is a matter of first class policy.
