HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c25
50. Mr. Warbey

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what progress has been made with the preparation of the new Control Agreement for Austria.

Mr. J. Hynd

A draft agreement which reflects the desire of His Majesty's Government that control should be released to the fullest extent practicable has been laid before the Allied Control Authority in Vienna by the British representative.

Mr. Warbey

Arising out of that reply, which will give considerable satisfaction, may I ask whether the Minister will assure the House that His Majesty's Government will press for the earliest possible adoption of the new agreement?
