Thus the Dominions were present in full force. Japan still lacked the leader of the delegation, the Marquis Saionji, who did not appear until the fourth Plenary Meeting on April nth, but Makino was a most competent substitute. Paderewski was, perhaps, the most notable absentee, and Poland was represented again by Roman Dmowski. The popular Venizelos took his seat for the first time for Greece. Altogether it was a remarkable gathering. At the outset some surprise was caused by the President's announcement that at the request of the United States Delegation the approval of the Protocol (official jargon for 'minutes') of the first session would be postponed until the next session, as that Delegation had not yet received the English text, which it reserved the right to present to the Conference.

Actually, like the British Cabinet, it had no constitutional or statutory basis.
