HC Deb 21 June 1950 vol 476 cc1266-7
7. Mr. Maclay

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when he expects to present the White Paper on the London Conferences.

Mr. Younger

The Paper was laid on the Table of the House this morning and was available in the Votes Office at 2 o'Clock.

Mr. Maclay

While thanking the Minister for that information, may I ask if he realises, that it is a month since the White Paper was promised and that, as the Prime Minister himself has said that the London Conferences could result in a surrender on an unprecedented scale by each country of the ability to do as it pleases, it is really a long time to leave us without information as to what happened at the Conferences?

Mr. Younger

A certain amount of information has been given. I agree that there has been some delay in this matter, and I hope that now the White Paper is available hon. Members will be satisfied.
