1. Mr.Boothby

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give any information regarding the whereabouts and activities of Marshal Pétain and his Government.

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

I understand that Marshal Pétain and his administration are still located in Vichy.

Mr. Boothby

Has my right hon. Friend reason to believe that Marshal Pétain's Government are still pursuing a policy of full collaboration with the German authorities?

Mr. Eden

I really do not know what they, are doing. I think interest from our point of view is at a low level.

Commander Looker-Lampson

Will my right hon. Friend have no truck with the Vichy virgins?
