HC Deb 12 December 1945 vol 417 c379
5. Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a statement as to the policy of His Majesty's Government regarding the future of the former Italian territories in North and East Africa and of Italian-occupied islands in the Mediterranean.

Mr. Bevin

I have nothing to add to the statement I made to the House on 9th October.

Sir G. Jeffreys

May I ask if this country has not got a policy, and whether that policy will include terms which will prevent the occupation by Italy or any European Power of points of our lines of communications from which those lines of communications could be threatened?

Mr. Bevin

I think that when I gave the report to the Council of Foreign Ministers I made a comprehensive statement which deals with that point.
