Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

Well, that is something I wish I were in a position to answer. I might say that in the correspondence with the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom he was kind enough to express the wish that I might personally attend. I explained the position I was in with respect to attending any meeting in August, because of the convention to be held at that time. As to what it may be thought best to do thereafter may best be decided, I should think, after that meeting. I have expressed my desire to be as accommodating as it is possible for me to be in helping to .bring about the meeting at a time which would be most convenient for the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and the other prime ministers.
