§ 45. Mr. Thorne
asked the Prime Minister whether the Government have considered the questions of annexations, reparations and indemnities in connection with the war settlements?
§ The Deputy Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)
My hon. Friend can rest assured that these questions will receive careful consideration by the Government at the appropriate time in consultation with the interested Allied Governments and with due regard to the principles enunciated in the Atlantic Charter.
§ Mr. Thorne
May I take it that the Government know that the damage which is being done during this war is much heavier than that done during the last war, and that when hostilities cease this matter will be dealt with?
