WELLINGTON, April 25,
Sir James Allen states that the Government has been in communication with the Imperial Government to ask whether ,it would say. ..if celebrations were to take place on the signing of the preliminary peace or on the.nnal peace. V.We have been unable to get an answer, so we have, had 'to decide tor ourselves. Cabinet has come to the conclusion that the celebrations should take place on the signing of the preliminary peace. As this may take place at any time, those local authorities which desire to carry out the • peace celebrations are warned that they should make their preparations without dolay. The Minister of Internal Affairs has been asked to circulate this information to local bodies. As soon as we get official intimation o£ the signing of the preliminary peace we will notify the public. 1 hope that the people will not accept anything but official information from the Government." . .
