HC Deb 05 August 1919 vol 119 cc188-9W

asked the Prime Minister whether the Imperial War Cabinet, as described in his statement to the House on l7th May, 1917, is still in being; if so, of whom is it composed and when did it last meet?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The Imperial War Cabinet has usually been attended by the Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom and of the Dominions, or visiting or resident Ministers of the Dominions in London appointed by them, by Members of the War Cabinet, by the Secretaries of State and other Ministers, according to the business under consideration. The last meeting of the Imperial War Cabinet in London was held on the 31st December, 1918, but a similar organisation existed in Paris during the Peace negotiations as the British Empire Delegation, and had frequent meetings, the last being on 10th June, 1919.
