HC Deb 30 May 1945 vol 411 c194
12. Mr. Ivor Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether satisfactory arrangements have been reached with the Yugoslav Government on the administration of Trieste.

Mr. Eden

Discussions with the Yugoslav Government about Trieste are still proceeding, and I have no statement to make at the moment.

Mr. Thomas

Will my right hon. Friend represent to Marshal Tito that he will not advance his aims by describing British troops as exercising Gestapo control in another uniform?

Mr. Eden

We all have the utmost confidence in the fair play and conduct of British Forces, wherever they are.

Mr. Silverman

Will the right hon. Gentleman likewise agree that it will not advance any Allied cause to describe Marshal Tito's actions as bearing any similarity to Hitler's.
