HC Deb 20 May 1941 vol 371 cc1394-5
55. Sir T. Moore

asked the Prime Minister whether he has now considered the possibilites and advantages of initiating the formation of a commonwealth of free peoples based on the co-operation of those Governments now operating on British or Allied territory, and the acceptance of any other nations willing to fight for the restoration or preservation of their freedom?

The Prime Minister

Any consideration which I have been able to give to the spacious and speculative matters referred to by my hon. and gallant Friend has not so far led me to seek an opportunity of committing myself or His Majesty's Government upon it.

Sir T. Moore

Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind such a suggestion as I have made which might lead to the ultimate creation of a real League of Nations based on freedom?
