HC Deb 12 February 1941 vol 368 c1337
1. Mr. Mander

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now able to make a statement with reference to the setting up of a Joint Allied Council for the consideration of problems of mutual interest, and as a symbol of the international purposes for which the war is being fought?

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Eden)

As my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal informed the hon. Member on 22nd October last, His Majesty's Government consider that the existing methods for co-operation and consultation with the various Allied Governments and organisations are fully adequate to deal with all questions of common interest which arise.

Mr. Mander

Will the Minister say that he is keeping in mind the possibility at some future stage of an organisation of this kind?

Mr. Eden

I can say nothing about the future, but I am content that matters are going quite well for the present.
