HC Deb 06 December 1950 vol 482 cc329-30
3. Professor Savory

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received a reply to the protest, which he made on 10th November, to the Soviet Government against their attempt to prevent police from maintaining order during the recent Communist-inspired disturbances in Austria.

Mr. Ernest Davies

No. Sir.

Professor Savory

What do His Majesty's Government intend to do in the meantime to prevent the Communists being armed by the Soviet authorities with a view to riot? Surely we can do something now.

Mr. Davies

We have no evidence that the action which the hon. Member mentioned has taken place but, in any case, we have made our protest and we hope that due note will be taken of it in the appropriate quarters.
