N. Z. DELEGATES ANXIETY
(Received May 6, 11.30 a.m.) LONDON, May 5. The 'Peace Treaty is almost ready for presentation. The German delegates are at Versailles, but unexpected delays have arisen owing to the Italian difficulty. The New Zealand representatives are exceedingly anxious to return to the Dominion at the earliest possible date, but cannot leave until the Treaty has been signed, the amount of indemnity fixed and apportioned and mandates in regard to the former German colonies finally determined, and other matters of great importance to New Zealand disposed of. It can be stated that any opinions as to the Germans signing or refusing to sign the Treaty are mere speculation but it is certain the final settlement will be at least a little more protracted than originally anticipated.
