asked the Prime Minister whether the date of the postponed Economic Conference at Genoa has yet been decided on; and whether he is in a position to give the names of the British delegates?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

The present arrangement is that the Genoa Conference should meet on 10th April. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.

Has the question of Easter in Italy been considered in reference to the date of the Conference, and will it not probably be postponed for a few days until about the 15th or the 20th?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

The British Government suggested apparently the 10th to the Italian Government. I think that the Italian Government have no desire to postpone the Conference to a later date than is necessary. If the particular date appears to be inconvenient to them, they will no doubt say so.
