HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c9
17. Major Guy Lloyd asked

the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government are satisfied that the inclusion of one member of the National Peasant Party and one member of the National Liberal Party in Rumania fulfils the agreement of the Moscow Conference to broaden the basis of the Government of that country; and what percentage do the two additions mentioned bear to the total number of members of that Government.

Mr. McNeil

The answer to the first part of the question is "Yes," and to the second part "10 per cent."

Major Lloyd

Is it the opinion of His Majesty's Government that Rumania now has a democratic regime?

Mr. McNeil

I do not think that arises from this Question. His Majesty's Government are satisfied that the Moscow Agreement on this subject has been implemented.

Mr. Gallacher

Will the Minister assure the House from his knowledge, that Rumania has not a landlord and capitalist regime?

Mr. Austin

Will my hon. Friend also convey to his right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary the fact that in Greece there is no Socialist representation whatsoever?

Mr. McNeil

I think that is a very doubtful assumption.
