We show the equivalence between the superspace formulation and the conventional component field approach based on the superconformal tensor calculus of ${\cal N}=1$ conformal supergravity in four dimensions, and that superspace formulation does not have the restriction previously discussed by
Kugo and Uehara.
We present also the correspondences of the conformal multiplets.
This talk is based on the preprint arXiv:1602.04441.
