§ 45. Captain FULLER
asked the Prime Minister, in view of the ease with which personal contact with representatives of the Dominions is now possible, whether the establishment of a small imperial council to discuss and suggest solutions to inter-Imperial problems is contemplated?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom are always ready to consider any practical suggestion for supplementing the existing arrangements for consultation and co-operation between this country and the Dominions. I doubt, however, whether the establishment of a formal permanent body on the lines suggested by my hon. and gallant Friend would be generally acceptable or 943 materially assist in securing the objects desired.
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I think it is quite unnecessary to obtain their views formally, because I happen to know exactly what reactions they would show if His Majesty's Government made this proposal to them.
