asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has any statement to make on the visit of Australian and New Zealand Members of Parliament to this country; and whether reciprocal arrangements for Members of this House to visit these two Dominions have yet been made?

I understand that the Empire Parliamentary Association have made arrangements for a visit to this country by a Parliamentary Delegation of seven members from Australia and a similar Delegation of two members from New Zealand to take place in the course of the next two months. The Association hope to be able to arrange for the visit of a small United Kingdom Delegation to Australia and New Zealand later in the year. Visits to other Dominions may possibly take place in the near future.
