Your telegram re conference  is first report since Monday.
Suggestion you should go to India at present is impracticable:
clearly you should stick to your post, meeting me Perth as arranged. Gollan or Critchley or McIntyre could attend on official level if conference met in meantime. Obviously you must be close at hand from time of my arrival in Australia. Please inform the Prime Minister.
