HC Deb 29 March 1944 vol 398 c1415
15. Mr. I. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government associate themselves with the Soviet declaration to restore to Rumania the northern half of Transylvania.

Mr. Eden

I am not aware that the Soviet Government have made any such declaration.

Mr. Thomas

Is my right hon. Friend aware that President Benes has disclosed this information?

Mr. Eden

I am dealing with what the Soviet Government have said and not what somebody else, however eminent, may have reported them to have said.

Mr. Price

Are we to understand that the right hon. Gentleman has received no intimation from the Government of the U.S.S.R. about their intentions and desires in regard to Transylvania?

Mr. Eden

I have never said that. We are in constant communication with our Allies on this subject. What I said was that they have made no such declaration.
