asked the Prime Minister if he can give the House any information with regard to the proceedings at the Hague Conference?

The meetings of the non-Russian Commission have been occupied with arranging the procedure for the work of the Conference. Three Sub-commissions have been formed, for debts, property and credits. Complete unanimity has been attained among the representatives of the Powers attending.

Has the question of credits been discussed between the British and the Russian delegates, and what instructions have been given to the British delegates in reference to that matter?

The Russian delegates only arrived at The Hague the day before yesterday. I am not in a position to answer the question at the moment.

What are the instructions of the British delegates with regard to that matter?

I dare say that I can give them if the hon. and gallant Member will give me notice.
