HC Deb 10 May 1948 vol 450 c1705
Mr. Speaker

I should like to inform the House that I have received a cablegram from the President of the Danish Parliament, which I propose to read:

"His Excellency, The SPEAKER of the House of Commons, London, S.W.1.

Eight years ago those words were uttered in the British Parliament which gave promise of the restoration to Denmark of Liberty and Independence. The Danish Parliament request Your Excellency to accept its heartfelt thanks for the unforgettable contribution of Britain and the British Parliament towards the liberation of Denmark and today, on V.E. Day, it tenders its most cordial wishes for the future of the United Kingdom.


President of the Folketing."

I have sent a suitable reply.

Hon. Members

Hear, hear.
