HC Deb 18 February 1942 vol 377 c1773
2. Captain Alan Graham

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of their active efforts here and now on behalf of a Great Germany and their openly expressed contempt for the Government of this country, whose guests they are, he will assure both the House and the nation that no official countenance or support whatsoever will be afforded to any association of Germans in this country calling themselves, or acting as, Free Germans?

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

No official recognition has been given to a Free German movement, and none is contemplated.

Captain Graham

While thanking my right hon. Friend for that assurance, may we take it that he is as convinced as we are that with the Germans it is impossible to finesse?

Mr. Eden

I think my answer covers that.
