I do not know for what purpose he went, but it is clear that there has been co-ordination between the central banks. I cannot give the undertaking that has been asked for; on the contrary I do not intend to interfere in that matter. This Amendment is to provide that the appointed day shall not be earlier than the end of the year. I cannot forecast what the date will be, but I do not suppose it will be until the autumn because there are printing contracts and other things to wind up, and all that will have to be done. No reason has been given for tying the hands of the Government except this Genoa Convention, and I cannot influence that Convention at all. I cannot call it together, and it was not proposed that any Government should call it together. If that is the only reason for moving this Amendment, then I must ask the House to reject it.
