HC Deb 30 July 1941 vol 373 c1377
1. Mr. Mander

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether the Foreign Research and Press Services Review includes amongst its duties the study of peace aims and world reconstruction after the war; and what progress has been made?

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

The Foreign Research and Press Service are engaged in collecting and collating material of all kinds, including that bearing upon the problems of post-war reconstruction.

Mr. Mander

Can my right hon. Friend say how far they have got with it, and whether they may be expected to present a report to the Government before long?

Mr. Eden

There is no question of presenting a report. They are not making plans; they are collecting information for the use of others.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Is there any intention of publishing it?

Mr. Eden

I cannot answer that.
