§ 70. Mr. Chamberlain
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the principles agreed at the Canberra Conference of September, 1947, still represents the policy of His Majesty's Government in relation to the preparation of terms of peace for Japan.
§ Mr. Mayhew
No set of agreed principles emerged from the Canberra Conference since it was decided beforehand that the purpose of the meeting was to exchange views, without commitment, on broad lines. The discussions did, however reveal a satisfactory measure of accord among the various Governments represented. The views then advocated by the United Kingdom Delegation are still, broadly speaking, the views of His Majesty's Government.
