§ 53. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Domnion Affairs whether, simultaneously with the Imperial Conference in the autumn, there will be a conference of business men to discuss the economic relations of the different parts of the Empire; and, if so, whether he can indicate the methods of selecting these representatives?
§ Mr. GILLETT (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)
I have been asked to reply. I understand that a Preparatory Committee has been formed by organisations in this country concerned with industry, commerce and shipping, and that this committee is in communication with similar organisations in the other parts of the Empire with the object of bringing together the views of all these interests before the Imperial Conference. I gather that the question of holding a business conference in this connection is under consideration.
