§ 7. Mr. Hugh Lawson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will give an assurance that no final decision as to the armistice terms to be imposed on the Nazi armies or as to the future political or territorial arrangements in Europe will be made without the prior approval of Parliament.
§ Mr. Lawson
While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for that assurance, may I ask whether it is his intention that this Debate should take place before the Recess?
§ Mr. Silverman
As it was made clear in yesterday's Debate that the armistice terms will last probably for a considerable time, while more permanent peace terms are being considered, is it not proper that, on this occasion, the House should be informed beforehand and invited to approve whatever conditions are agreed upon?
§ Sir Percy Harris
Was it not made clear yesterday that the House supported unconditional surrender?
