§ 3. Sir R. THOMAS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will, at an early date, invite the United States of America to a round-table conference on questions relating to the Pacific Ocean, with the object of achieving unification of policy in regard to all matters affecting the interests of the white races?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
The relations between Great Britain and the United States of America as regards questions affecting the Pacific Ocean are based on the Four-Power Treaty signed at Washington on the 13th of December, 1921. This Treaty, to which France and Japan are also signatories, is likely to provide a better guarantee for peace than any bilateral arrangement.
