asked the Prime Minister whether he can yet give the House the names of the British delegates to the proposed conference at Genoa; whether there has been any alteration in the date for the proposed Genoa Conference; and, if so, what is the reason for such alteration?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The Italian Foreign Office have informed the Governments invited to participate in the Conference that, owing to the prolongation of the Ministerial crisis, it is necessary to postpone the Genoa Conference for a short time. Preparations for the Conference are being continued without interruption, and as the result of the agreement arrived at with the French Premier the Italian Government is being asked to call the Conference for 10th April.
