§ 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 5 honourable peace, but the Finnish Government have not approached His Majesty's Government in the matter of mediation.
