§ 64. Captain ERSKINE-BOLST
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can now state when the invitations to the Lausanne Conference on 16th June will be issued; who will issue them; and to which countries the invitations will be addressed?
§ Mr. EDEN
As my right hon. Friend informed my hon. Friend, the Member for East Dorset (Mr. Hall-Caine) on 17th February last, the question of invitations to attend the Conference at Lausanne is one for the joint consideration of the six inviting Powers responsible for the communiqué relating to the holding of the Conference which was published in the Press on 13th February last. His Majesty's Government are now in corre- 576 spondence with the five other Governments concerned, but I can as yet make no public statement.
§ Captain ARTHUR HOPE
Is there any truth in the rumours that this Conference may be adjourned until the autumn?
