HC Deb 03 May 1934 vol 289 c476
45. Dr. HOWITT

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the suggestion by the Right Honourable Stanley Bruce in Australia that an Imperial Conference should be held in London next year for the consideration of defence and of economic policy in the light of the results of the Ottawa Agreements, he will give sympathetic consideration to the proposal?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

No suggestion of this kind has been brought to my notice as having been made by Mr. Bruce. As my hon. Friend is aware, the question of the date for an Imperial Conference is a matter for discussion and arrangement between all the Governments concerned.


Will the right hon. Gentleman see that, if arrangements are ultimately arrived at, any conclusions that may be reached at such Conference shall be strictly adhered to by all parties concerned?


I will remember my hon. Friend's point.
