Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, in the morning press there is an announcement that this year there is to be an Imperial Conference of the nature of that in 1921 to be held simultaneously with an Imperial Economic Conference, and that to the former all prime ministers are invited and all are going save the Prime Minister of New Zealand, who presumably along with the others is to attend the latter. May I ask if this conference has been decided upon if it is to be attended by the Prime Minister or by others of the government, and if so, what is the agenda that has been agreed upon or submitted to the government as subjects for consideration at the economic conference and also at the conference of the character of that of 1921?
