asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether Dominion Governments were consulted before the despatch of the communication to Foreign Powers respecting the laying of wreaths on War memorials; and, if so, what was the nature of the replies received thereto?

His Majesty's Governments in the Dominions were informed by telegram of the position in advance of the communication to Foreign Governments. Two replies were received to this telegram, both of which expressed concurrence in the proposed action.

No. As I have said, two replies have been received, including one from the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia.

Does the hon. Member think that a reply informing the Dominions that they had taken this action is the proper procedure?
