§ Mr. George Brown
The policy of Her Majesty's Government to which they are committed by treaty, is that the final
§ and the number coming from the rest of the country's schools has gone up from 34 per cent. to 42 per cent.
§ Following is the information:
§ determination of the boundaries of Germany must await a peace settlement.
§ Mr. Rose
Is my right hon. Friend aware that any change in the frontiers can only come about through war? Is not this present uncertainty conducive to nationalism in Germany, and does it not stand in way of a dêtente in Europe? In view of that, will my right hon. Friend make it quite unequivocally certain that this Government stand by the present frontiers of Germany?
§ Mr. Dodds-Parker
What progress did the Foreign Secretary make with Mr. Kosygin in discussing a peace treaty with Germany?
§ Mr. Dickens
Notwithstanding the forthcoming peace conference and treaty on East Germany's frontiers, will my right hon. Friend state whether or not he accepts the proposition that the uncertainty about these frontiers is a threat to peace in Central Europe? What discussions did he have last week with the Polish Foreign Minister on this very important question?
§ Mr. Brown
If my hon. Friend would care to table a Question on the latter point, I should be very glad to answer him. On the general question, I believe that uncertainty about the situation in Central Europe is a factor which is disturbing; but I repeat that there are many others involved in bringing this to an end and the moves which not only we but the Federal Government of Germany and others are making towards a dètente are all to be welcomed in this respect.
§ Mr. Walters
Does not the Foreign Secretary regret the fact that some of the statements about Germany which Mr. Kosygin made when he was in London were not repudiated a little more robustly in public by the British Government?
§ Mr. John Hynd
Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that we are not likely to achieve a satisfactory overall 74 settlement of these problems by unilateral pronouncements across frontiers? That will not help towards reaching a peace conference. Is it the fact, as has been implied, that it is Her Majesty's Government who have been holding up such a conference where the matter can be settled?
§ Mr. Longden
Does the Foreign Secretary think that the Prime Minister of this country would have taken the opportunity of a banquet in Prague to abuse the Soviet Union and other allies of the Czech Government?
§ Mr. Maxwell
—are delighted at the way he dealt with this matter; but, arising out of the question of Germany's frontiers, may I ask him whether Her Majesty's Government support West Germany on her stand about the Sudeten 1938 Munich Treaty with Czechoslovakia still being valid, or whether he agrees with me that it is null and void?
