§ 67. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs why Newfoundland was not represented at the Jubilee celebrations or the informal conferences with overseas representatives?
The SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. J. H. Thomas)
In so far as the question of formal representation of His Majesty's oversea Dominions has arisen at ceremonies forming part of the Jubilee celebrations, the representation of Newfoundland has, in view of the present constitutional position, been undertaken by myself as Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs. The same would apply to the informal conversations with Dominion Prime Ministers if any question specially affecting Newfoundland should arise. I may add that we have welcomed the participation in the Jubilee celebrations generally of a number of His Majesty's subjects from Newfoundland who were in London.
