1935

Despite resolving to meet in 1934, the next meeting was not held until 1935, and, despite the discussion of meeting in Cambridge, the Conference report suggests it was in London.

The 1935 Conference confirmed that meetings should be held every three years and it was agreed that the four-year period would be ‘too long between drinks’. There was also a resolution that the Conference should be extended from 10 days to a fortnight – subject to the approval of the Colonial Office.

Cambridge once again became the focus of attention for the venue – particularly because the delegates were so scattered around various accommodations in London, making opportunities for socialising and informal discussion outside the meeting very rare.
