David Lloyd George, the Prime Minister, proposed a peace deal at the Genoa Conference which included proposals for countries to disarm. There were four separate Commissions established, the first to discuss the Russian situation, the second to discuss financial issues, the third to discuss economic issues and the fourth to discuss transport issues.

It was confirmed that an Earldom had been granted to Sir Arthur Balfour.

The Earl of Crawford was appointed as a Minister of Transport, replacing Viscount Peel.
