§ 13. Mr. A. HENDERSON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action His Majesty's Government propose to take in view of the representations made by the French Government to His Majesty's Government in favour of terminating the agreements for mutual military assistance made between this country and France, Jugoslavia, Greece, and Turkey?
§ 14. Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the arrangements for the withdrawal of a portion of the British Fleet from the Mediterranean affect in any way the staff plans between Great Britain, France, Yugoslavia, and Greece for mutual support in the event of attack and were made after consultation with and agreement with the States acting with this country?
§ Mr. EDEN
The withdrawal of certain units of the British Fleet from the Mediterranean has no connection with the unilateral and provisional assurance of continued support to certain Mediterranean Powers to which I referred in the course of the Debate on 18th June. So far as France is concerned, the hon. Member will be aware that the French Government regard the mutual assurances exchanged between this country and France as cancelled on the withdrawal of sanctions.
§ Sir ARCHIBALD SINCLAIR
Have not some of the other countries, Yugoslavia and Greece, for instance, withdrawn their assurances?
