§ 6 and 7. Professor Savory
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (1) whether, on his forthcoming visit to Moscow, he will urge the inclusion in any amended treaty of Clauses 2 and 3 of the Atlantic Charter of 12th August, 1941, in accordance with which no territorial changes shall take place that are not in 459 accord with the freely-expressed wishes of the peoples concerned, and that sovereign rights and self-government are to be restored to those peoples who have been forcibly deprived of them; and
(2) whether, on his forthcoming visit to Moscow, he will urge the inclusion in any amended treaty of the two principles set forth in Article 5 of the Anglo-Soviet Agreement of 26th May, 1942, to the effect that the high contracting parties will not seek territorial aggrandisement for themselves nor interfere in the internal affairs of other States.
§ Mr. Mayhew
I will bring the points raised in both Questions to the attention of my right hon. Friend.
§ Professor Savory
Will the Government insist on pointing out that the three Baltic States—Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia—have never been given their rights, guaranteed to them under these agreements, and will it not be possible to restore their freedom and their independence?
