HC Deb 22 March 1944 vol 398 c832
6. Captain Alan Graham

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will assure the House that it is the policy of His Majesty's Government not to agree to the sacrifice of any Greek or Yugoslav territory for peace with Bulgaria; and that any terms offered to that country will be such as are acceptable to all our Allies.

Mr. Eden

I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that there is no question of offering Bulgaria any Greek or Yugoslav territory as an inducement to come out of the war. As regards the second part of the question His Majesty's Government are fully conscious of the need to ensure that any terms offered to Bulgaria shall be acceptable to all our Allies who are directly concerned.

Captain Graham

Is my right hon. Friend aware that that answer will give the utmost satisfaction in various quarters which had reason to feel considerable anxiety on this score?

Mr. Eden

I do not know how anybody can ever have felt any anxiety when I have stated the policy over and over again, and said that we do not propose to change it.
