Collapse of Negotiations Not
Feared; London Gives Full
LONDON, July 22. (AP) The
Geneva negotiations for reduction
of naval armaments are to be re
sumed without delay, under a de
cision reached today by the cabi
net. Effectually silencing varied
reports of the imminent collapse
of the conference, the cabinet de
cided that a part, at least of the
British delegation summoned here
to report, would leave immediately
to resume the discussions
The cabinet, council ' was the
longest held since those during
the coal strike last year. Four
hours were devoted to listening to
reports by Viscount Cecil and W.
C. Bridgeman upon the develop
ments at Geneva .and apparent ob
stacles to successful termination.
It was determined that Viscount
Cecil and Mr. Bridgeman, who had
returned to London to report on
the conference, will return to
Geneva almost immediately to re
sume their labors and that they
will return with the cabinet's full
approval of the lines they have
taken hitherto.
Little ; real apprehension had
been expressed here that the con
ference had collapsed. This fear
was excluded by the fact that prep
arations for Premier Baldwin's de
parture for Canada with the
Prince of Wales tomorrow have
continued to go forward, but it
was thought that- difficulties
might arise within the cabinet
