The following Question stood on the Order Paper in the name of Mr. BOOTHBY:143To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government will now recognise General de Gaulle's administration as the Provisional Government of France.
§ 10. Mr. Ivor Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the representative in London of the French Provisional Government is accorded the privileges, immunities and precedence of an ambassador.
§ Mr. Law
The representative in London of the French Provisonal Government will be entitled to the same privileges, immunities and precedence as other heads of mission of corresponding rank, when he has presented his letters of credence to the King as French Ambassador. M. Massigli, as was the case with his predecessor, M. Viénot, already enjoys as a matter of courtesy certain privileges and immunities of the kind normally granted to heads of diplomatic Missions.
§ 13. Mr. Martin
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can make any further statement on the policy of His Majesty's Government towards the French Provisional Government.
§ Mr. Martin
Does this mean that the French Provisional Government will be represented on the European Advisory Commission?
