asked the Prime Minister, in view of the fact that the United States of America recognizes the sovereignty of the Sultan of Morocco in Tangier, and American warships salute his flag on entering Tangier, whether the United States will be invited to participate in the Tangier Conference and whether he can state what countries will take part in the conference?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

The sovereignty of the Sultan of Morocco is not in question. The object of the conference is to revise the Tripartite Agreement between France, Spain and Great Britain, the final conclusion of which was postponed owing to the War. It is proposed, therefore, to limit the conference to representatives of those three countries.
