PRIME MINISTERS' MEETINGS
ROM 1911 to 1937, Imperial Conferences of the Prime Ministers and other Ministers of Britain and the Dominions were held periodically to discuss matters of common concern, particularly constitutional questions, foreign affairs, defence and economic policy. At the end of each conference full reports of the proceedings and conclusions were published. A brief account of the Imperial Conferences during these years was included in the 1955 Commonwealth Relations Office List.
When meetings were resumed in 1944 the old Imperial Conferences gave place to the more informal exchanges of views on issues of first importance provided by the present Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Meetings, and ad hoc conferences of other Ministers for the discussion of particular questions. Details of the proceedings of these meetings are not published, but it is the practice for a communiqué to be issued at the close of each meeting summarising its results. Brief outlines of the communiqués issued from 1944 to 1962 may be found in the Commonwealth Relations Office Lists of 1961 to 1964. The communiqués issued after the Prime Ministers' Meetings of 1964 and 1965 were published in the Commonwealth Relations Office Year Book, 1966.
There were two Prime Ministers' Meetings in 1966. The earlier of these, at Lagos, was the first meeting to be held in a Commonwealth capital other than London and the first devoted to a single subject (Rhodesia). The communiqués of both the 1966 meetings were published in the Commonwealth Office Year Book, 1967.
There were no Prime Ministers' Meetings during 1967 or 1968. In January 1969 there was a Meeting of Commonwealth Heads of Government in London. The communiqué was published in the Year Book of the Commonwealth, 1970. The next meeting will be held in Singapore in January 1971.
