HC Deb 11 April 1949 vol 463 c2458
19. Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any further information concerning the appeal of Cardinal Mindszenty.

Mr. Mayhew

I regret I have nothing to add to the reply given to the hon. Member on 16th March last.

Mr. Teeling

Can the Under-Secretary say whether anything further has been done on the part of His Majesty's Government, and is it not possible for the Hungarian Government deliberately not to permit an appeal to be made so that if the matter comes before the United Nations they can say that it is still sub judice?

Mr. Mayhew

The hon. Gentleman will be aware of the note which we sent recently to the Hungarian Government, as he may also know that this matter is to be raised at the General Assembly of the United Nations.
