§ 46. Mr. BOOTHBY
asked the Prime Minister where the forthcoming International Conference on Reparations will be held?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Dalton)
I have been asked to reply. I have at present nothing to add to the reply given yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to the hon. and gallant Member for Chelmsford (Colonel Howard-Bury).
§ Mr. BOOTHBY
Will the Government be in a position to make a statement on the question before the House rises for the Recess?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Will the Prime Minister take into consideration in this matter the fact that, if the Conference is held in London and we are in the position of being hosts in the matter, we shall more likely be pressed to make concessions than if it is held on mutual territory?
§ Mr. DALTON
I wish the right hon. Gentleman could convince the other Powers that that was the case.
