    Background: IT HAS BEEN A BUSY WEEKEND AT LONDON AIRPORT AS LEADERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD ARRIVED FOR THIS WEEK'S COMMONWEALTH CONFERENCE. THE CONFERENCE OPENS IN LONDON ON WEDNESDAY AND GOES ON FOR A WEEK.

    FIRST ARRIVAL YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) WAS MR. JOMO KENYATTA, THE KENYAN PRIME MINISTER, WHO WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HIS MINISTER FOR JUSTICE, MR TOM MBOYA. NEWLY-INDEPENDENT KENYA IS BEING REPRESENTED FOR THE FIRST TIME AT THIS ANNUAL REVIEW OF COMMONWEALTH AFFAIRS.

    ON ARRIVAL, MR KENYATTA CALLED FOR BRITAIN'S PARTICIPATION IN AN ECONOMIC BOYCOTT AGAINST SOUTH AFRICA, AS WELL AS DEMANDING A HALT TO THE SUPPLYING OF ARMS TO DR VERWOERD'S REGIME.

    JAMAICA IS BEING REPRESENTED BY DR DONALD SANGSTER, THE DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER, WHO ALSO ARRIVED YESTERDAY. HE IS STANDING IN FOR SIR ALEXANDER BUSTAMENTE, WHO IS ILL.

    MR. KEITH HOLYOAKE, NEW ZEALAND'S PRIME MINISTER, WAS THE FIRST OF TODAY'S (SUNDAY) ARRIVALS. HE WAS WELCOMED BY THE NEW ZEALAND HIGH COMMISSIONER TO BRITAIN AND COMMONWEALTH RELATIONS OFFICE OFFICIALS.

    ANOTHER ARRIVAL FROM THE CARIBBEAN WAS DR ERIC WILLIAMS, THE PRIME MINISTER OF TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO. AFTER BEING WELCOMED BY THE ACTING HIGH COMMISSIONER, DR WILLIAMS WAS REUNITED WITH HIS DAUGHTER ERIKA, WHO IS STUDYING IN ENGLAND.

    PAKISTANIS WERE OUT IN FORCE AS PRESIDENT AYUB KHAN FLEW IN FROM ANKARA, WHERE HE HAD BEEN DISCUSSING THE CYPRUS TROUBLES. THE PROBLEM OF KASHMIR IS ALMOST CERTAINLY TO BE RAISED YET AGAIN AT THE CONFERENCE.

    TODAY'S LAST ARRIVAL WAS MR. SPYROS KYPRIANOU, THE CYPRIOT FOREIGN MINISTER. HE IS REPRESENTING PRESIDENT MAKARIOS, WHO IS REMAINING IN NICOSIA TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE ISLAND'S TROUBLES.

    CYPRUS IS ANOTHER OF THE TOUCHY INTERNATIONAL PROBLEMS THAT WILL COME UP AT THE CONFERENCE, WHERE ABOUT A QUARTER OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION IS BEING REPRESENTED.
