16. Mr. HURD

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs if he has received representations from the Canadian Government upon the proposal to appoint a Canadian Minister at Tokio; and what reply he has returned?


It has been announced that, by agreement between the Governments of Canada and Japan, it is proposed, subject to the approval of the Canadian Parliament and the Japanese Diet respectively, that each of these countries shall be represented in the other by a Minister Plenipotentiary. His Majesty's Government in Great Britain were informed in advance of the desire of His Majesty's Government in Canada for such an arrangement, which is in accordance with the conclusions of the Imperial Conference of 1926, as indicated in Section V (c) and (e) of the Report of the Inter-Imperial Relations Committee.
