HC Deb 06 December 1939 vol 355 cc634-5
6. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the advisability of giving consideration to the possibility of making permanent the present association of Greať Britain and France as the beginning of an international structure open, in due course, to other nations?

The Prime Minister

The suggestion of the hon. Member would appear in present circumstances to be at least premature, but I am confident that Anglo-French collaboration will be as close and cordial in the work of reconstruction as it is in the conduct of the war.

Mr. Mander

Will the Prime Minister bear in mind that the closer and more permanent the association between this country and France, the more will the people of this country be pleased?

The Prime Minister

I do not need to be reminded of that.
