Official Statements of War Aims and Peace Proposals, December 1916 to November 1918

By James Brown Scott | Go to book overview

The leaders of the deputations to the Social-Democratic Party declared that they would not shoot against the people. They said they would, in accordance with the people's government, intercede in favor of the maintenance of order. Thereupon in the offices and public buildings the guards which had been stationed there were withdrawn.

The business of the Imperial Chancellor is being carried on by the Social-Democratic Deputy, Herr Ebert.

It is presumed that, apart from the representatives of the recent majority group, three independent Social-Democrats will enter the future government.


BRITISH PRESS BUREAU STATEMENT ON THE DOMINIONS AND THE PEACE CONFERENCES1
November 9, 1918

The statement of Premier Hughes of Australia that the terms of peace have been definitely settled at the recent conference at Versailles without consultation with the dominions makes it necessary to put on record the actual position with regard to this question.

From the first the British Government has recognized that the magnificent efforts and sacrifices made by the dominions and India in the common cause have entitled them to an equal voice with the United Kingdom in the settlement of the terms of peace.

It was with this specific object in view that the first Imperial War Cabinet was summoned last year. On that occasion every aspect of the general peace settlement was exhaustively discussed by the two committees of the Imperial War Cabinet, on each of which the dominions and India were represented as well as by the Imperial War Cabinet itself.

The Australian Government, for reasons of a domestic character, was not represented at these discussions, but the conclusions of the committee and of the Imperial War Cabinet on these matters were communicated to the Australian Government at the time and have since then been again reviewed at this year's session of the Imperial War Cabinet in a series of discussions in which representatives of Australia participated.
