HC Deb 02 December 1942 vol 385 c1133
14. Mr. Ivor Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will consult with the United States of America and the appropriate French authorities with a view to setting up a French civilian administration in the liberated French territories of North Africa as early as possible?

Mr. Eden

I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement made by the President of the United States on 17th November which deals with this question. I have no further statement to make on this subject for the present.
