HC Deb 16 February 1944 vol 397 c155
3. Major Nield

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if, in view of the Japanese atrocities against our prisoners of war in their hands, he will consider outlawing Japan, and making a public statement that after the war there can be no place for Japan among the civilised nations.

Mr. Eden

The question of the treatment to be accorded to Japan, as to our other enemies, after the war is clearly a matter for consultation between the Allied Governments concerned. His Majesty's Government would not therefore wish to make any unilateral declaration on the subject.
