§ Mr. Eden
I do not think it would be a good thing for us to try to discuss all these extremely difficult and delicate matters at Question Time. Naturally, Mr. Speaker, they are absorbing the constant thought of His Majesty's Government and particularly of the Foreign Office, and we are in the closest touch with both our Allies, the Government of the Soviet Union and the Polish Government in London. Our prevailing desire is to bring about a friendly settlement between the two countries, and this achievement would be of the utmost consequence to the future of Europe. We are not without hope that a favourable solution may be attained. I am sure the House will feel that the utmost reserve should be practised at this particular moment, and I feel confident that in these circumstances I may count upon the assistance of my hon. Friends and of the House.
