HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 cc1150-1
43. Professor Savory

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reply he has received from the Rumanian Government to his representations, regarding the falsification of the recent elections, contrary to the Moscow Agreement.

Mr. McNeil

My right hon. Friend has received no reply.

Professor Savory

Will the right hon. Gentleman impress upon the Rumanian Government that they would never have been recognised had they not given a most solemn assurance that the elections would be free and unfettered?

Mr. McNeil

Our views on this subject have been made perfectly clear. I do not think that there is any point in restating them.

Mr. Mack

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the results of these recent elections very fairly represent the political will of the Rumanian people, and that our Government, by interfering unwarrantably in Rumanian internal affairs, would retard the friendship between Britain and Rumania which we so ardently desire?
