HC Deb 24 March 1943 vol 387 cc1599-600
2. Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the United States of America was invited to send representatives to take part in the discussions which took place prior to this country entering into a 20 years' Treaty of Alliance with Russia?

Mr. Law

No, Sir. But the United States Government was kept fully informed of the discussions which led to the conclusion of the Anglo-Soviet Treaty.

Mr. Craven-Ellis

Is it not in the view of the Government essential that America, Russia and the British Commonwealth of Nations should be in complete agreement on post-war economic and monetary matters?

Mr. Law
