§ 2. Mr. Mander
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make it clear that the British Government's desire to encourage the formation 1893 of federations specifically includes a Danubian federation, including such States as Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Poland?
§ Mr. Eden
In my speech at Leamington on 26th September I referred to the existing Polish-Czechoslovak and Greek-Yugoslav agreements and said that, so far as we were concerned, we should continue to foster agreements of this kind and to encourage the smaller States to weld themselves into larger, though not exclusive, groupings. Whether it will be possible or desirable to include Austria and Hungary within a federation based upon Poland and Czechoslovakia must clearly depend, amongst other things, upon the views of the Polish and Czechoslovak Governments and peoples and upon the future attitude of the Austrians and Hungarians, who are now fighting in the ranks of our enemies.
§ Mr. Mander
In the event of the Governments of these States desiring such a federation, do I understand that the right hon. Gentleman will be sympathetic and give support to it?
§ 4. Mr. Mander
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what machinery is in existence for co-ordination among the United Nations in the formation of units of special national types, whether belonging to members of the United Nations or others?
§ Mr. Mander
Can the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance that it is not intended to form in this country an Austrian military unit under Habsburg patronage?
