HC Deb 03 April 1940 vol 359 c144
7. Mr. Arthur Henderson

asked the Prime Minister whether he can give the House any information on the proposed alliance between Norway, Sweden and Finland?

Mr. Butler

No specific information about any such proposed alliance has been communicated to His Majesty's Government.

Mr. Henderson

Can the Under-Secretary say whether there is anything in the Russo-Finnish Peace Treaty which precludes the Finnish Government entering into a defensive alliance with the Governments of Norway and Sweden?

Mr. Butler

I should want notice in order to give a reply worthy of the importance of the question.
