asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Second Session of the Conference on the Treatment of Foreigners is to be held at Paris or Geneva; and if he is prepared to urge that, in the interests of economy and efficiency, it should be held at the latter place.

The question as to whether the Second Session of the Conference is to be held at Paris or Geneva remains to be decided by the Council. Considerations of economy and efficiency will, of course, be borne in mind when the matter comes under discussion, and an exception to the general rule that all such Conferences should meet at Geneva would, I hope, only be made if it could be clearly demonstrated that the balance of advantage was in favour of meeting elsewhere.
