§ Mr. H. Morrison
The law has not yet been passed by both Houses of the German Federal Parliament. It received its second reading in the Lower House on 4th April. The law in its present draft form appears to be a domestic German matter which does not call for any intervention by the United Kingdom High Commissioner. In any event it would be premature to give any instructions to the United Kingdom High Commissioner in Germany as to the final attitude he should take towards the law before it has been passed.
§ Mr. Morrison
It is a very interesting development and I will certainly keep my hon. Friend's point in mind.
§ Mr. John Hynd
Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that previously a veto has been exercised against such a law by certain of the other Occupying Powers in the West? Will he bear this in mind when the law is passed?
