§ 1. Mr. Mander
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the British guarantee to Rumania remains in force?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Butler)
The Rumanian Government declared publicly on 1st July that they renounced the Anglo-French guarantee of 13th April, 1939. This guarantee was given unilaterally by His Majesty's Government and by the French Government. In the circumstances which have now arisen His Majesty's Government do not, so far as they themselves are concerned, consider that any further obligation devolves upon them under its terms.
