HC Deb 07 February 1945 vol 407 cc2052-3
11. Mr. Cocks

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the objection of the Greek Government to the inclusion of M. Tsirimokos, General Secretary of E.L.D., Union of Popular Democrats, in the E.A.M. delegation for the purpose of discussing conditions of agreement, has the approval of His Majesty's Government.

Mr. Law

As my hon. Friend will be aware, M. Tsirimokos is taking part in the conference.

Mr. Cocks

Does that answer mean that the Government are now abandoning the fiction that E.L.D. have broken away from E.A.M.?

Mr. Law

I think it simply means that Mr. Tsirimokos is negotiating with the Greek Government at this time. I do not think that we need draw any conclusions from that fact.
