§ Mr. Thorne
asked the Prime Minister how North Africa will be governed in the future; and whether General de Gaulle and General Giraud will be consulted?
§ Mr. Attlee
French North Africa is at present administered by the French civil and military High Command under General Giraud at Algiers, subject to certain powers which the Allied Commander-in-Chief enjoys in virtue of the arrangement which he concluded with the local 949W French authorities after the Allied landings last November. Any alteration in these arrangements would presumably be a matter for discussion between the parties concerned. General de Gaulle is not yet associated with the French High Command in North Africa.
