HC Deb 18 February 1941 vol 369 cc20-1
37. Mr. Wedgwood

asked the Prime Minister whether he will give time for the discussion of the Notice of Motion standing in the name of the right hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme concerning war aims?

[That, in the opinion of this House, no statement on war aims should be made by His Majesty's Ministers without previous consultation and agreement with the Government of the United States of North America.]

The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Attlee)

No, Sir. I am afraid I cannot hold out any hope of special opportunity being given for discussion of the Motion standing in the name of my right hon. Friend.

Mr. Wedgwood

Will the right hon. Gentleman urge that no statement of war turns should be laid down by His Majesty's Government without consultation with the United States Government?
