Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime' Minister):

My hon. friend was kind enough to tell me that he intended to ask this question. In reply I would say that the meeting of prime ministers which is to be held in London will not be in the nature of an imperial conference at which subjects would be considered in detail, with the presence of experts and advisers, but will be in the nature of an exchange of views between the prime ministers of the different nations of the commonwealth on the general war situation, war policy and post-war problems.
I doubt if I should at the moment attempt to go further in indicating the general nature of the meeting.
