HC Deb 16 February 1948 vol 447 cc814-5
20. Mr. John E. Haire

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the United Nations Commission on the Greek frontier problem has begun its investigation; and whether an interim report can be expected shortly.

Mr. McNeil

The United Nations Special Committee on the Balkans began the task assigned to it by the General Assembly from its headquarters in Salonika, on 1st December last. Its first Interim Report was adopted on 31st December and forwarded to the General Assembly. A second Interim Report was adopted on 10th January.

Mr. Haire

In view of the tender nature of the situation in Greece, might not the publication of these Interim Reports help to ease the international tension in regard to Greece?

Mr. McNeil

They have already been given some publicity, but I will, of course, consider whether they may be given fuller publicity.
