HC Deb 01 March 1926 vol 192 cc1012-3

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs if he can state, approximately, what length of time it is proposed to devote to the Imperial Conference in October; and whether he can give the House an idea of some of the subjects which are to be discussed?


The length of an Imperial Conference depends, of course, largely upon the character of the agenda, but previous Conferences have lasted approximately, a month to six weeks. The agenda for the forthcoming Conference will be worked out in detail during the next few months. It is contemplated that there should be a discussion, not only of questions of foreign policy and defence, including those arising out of the Locarno Treaty, but also of economic matters, such as were dealt with at the Imperial Economic Conference of 1923.
