HC Deb 31 January 1940 vol 356 c1116
2. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether any communication has been, or will be, addressed to the Vatican on the subject of the address given by the Pope to the College of Cardinals, on Christmas Eve, setting out five points that would have to be provided for in connection with any peace settlement?

Mr. Butler

No, Sir, but I am glad to take this opportunity of saying that His Majesty's Government have been deeply impressed by this and other recent pronouncements from the Vatican.
