I beg to lay upon the table of the House a despatch from the Right Hon. the Secretary of State for the Colonies to His Excellency the Governor General, transmitting copies of a parliamentary paper containing extracts from the minutes of the proceedings of the Imperial War Conference, 1917, and papers laid before the conference. If my right hon. friend has no objection, I would move:
That rule 74 he suspended in order that the documents so laid upon the table of the House be printed forthwith for the information of the members.
Subtopic: PAPERS IN CONNECTION WITH THE CONFERENCE PRESENTED.
