HC Deb 07 October 1942 vol 383 cc1188-9
5. Miss Ward

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give an assurance that the declaration of policy regarding the Fighting French, set out in a joint communiqué with the Soviet Government published on 28th September, denotes no change of policy so far as His Majesty's Government is concerned and that it remains the same as previously accepted by the Fighting French?

Mr. Eden

The attitude of His Majesty's Government towards Fighting France and the French National Committee was defined in the statements published in London on 14th July last, and is in no way affected by the joint communiqué issued on 28th September by the National Committee and the Soviet Government.

Miss Ward

Has my right hon. Friend any information that the Fighting French are negotiating an agreement with the Soviet Union?

Mr. Eden

I should like to have notice of that Question.
