6. Mr. SMITHEPS
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs if he can now state which of the Dominions are to be represented at the Imperial Economic Conference at Ottawa?
§ Mr. SMITHERS
Can the right hon. Gentleman give some indication as to when this information will be forthcoming; and does he propose to attend the conference himself?
§ Mr. THOMAS
It is impossible to give any information. It depends entirely upon the arrangements made by the Canadian Government and their negotiations with the other Dominions. As far as His Majesty's Government in this 6 country are concerned, we have expressed the view that we are prepared to attend, if the conference is arranged to the mutual satisfaction of the Dominions.
§ Sir NICHOLAS GRATTAN-DOYLE
In view of recent occurrences, can the right hon. Gentleman say if the Ottawa Conference will take place at all?
