HC Deb 03 November 1947 vol 443 c1310
2. Major Tufton Beamish

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs by whom the trial in Roumania of Dr. Maniu is being observed on behalf of His Majesty's Government; what approaches have been made to the Roumanian Government in this connection; and what replies have been received to these approaches.

Mr. Mayhew

The trial of Dr. Maniu is being attended by the information officer of His Majesty's Legation at Bucharest with another member of the legation staff who speaks Roumanian. An interpreter provided by His Majesty's legation is also assisting Reuter's correspondent at the trial. It has not been necessary to make any approaches to the Roumanian Government, since access to the court room was arranged informally.
