HC Deb 04 March 1940 vol 358 cc4-5
10. Mr. A. Henderson

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the recent pronouncement of the Finnish Foreign Minister that the Finnish Government would welcome friendly mediation from any source; and whether His Majesty's Government will now make it known that they are willing to do all that they are asked for in this direction?

Mr. Butler

I am not aware of the pronouncement to which the hon. Member refers. The Finnish Prime Minister stated on 31st January that the Finnish Government were prepared to negotiate an honourable peace, but the Finnish Government have not approached His Majesty's Government in the matter of mediation.
