§ 6. Professor Savory
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs on what ethnological or historical grounds His Majesty's Government have agreed to the City of Konigsberg being ceded to Russia.
§ Mr. Eden
As has been frequently stated it is the view of His Majesty's Government that East Prussia should be detached from Germany and the German population removed from it. In such conditions it would seem that the Soviet claim to Koenigsberg has justification. So far as I am aware, there is no considerable Polish element in the city.
§ Professor Savory
Have we abandoned Clause 5 of the Anglo-Soviet Treaty under which we mutually renounced all territorial aggrandisement in this war?
§ Mr. Gallacher
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the hon. Member is afraid that this might be used as a precedent for ceding Belfast to Ireland?
