§ 5. Mr. A. Bevan
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is in a position to inform the House of the name of the chief of the Liaison Commission to Greece.
§ Mr. Bevan
Is it not a fact that the reason why this officer was removed from his position was in consequence of pressure from Royalist circles in Greece and that the name of a recent liaison officer was not disclosed for security reasons, when, in fact, the Germans had been aware of his identity for more than nine months?
§ Mr. Eden
The answer to the first part of the hon. Gentleman's supplementary is, "No, Sir," and the answer to the second part is that we do not wish to make public the name of this officer, or any other officer at present in Greece, because he and they are carrying out im- 1744 portant and difficult negotiations which we hope and believe, will result in uniting the guerrilla bands. Therefore, I say, most emphatically, that I am not prepared to give the names of any officers or to say where they are.
