§ Mr. Riley
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Allied Governments or Allied Command in the Mediterranean have any direct contacts with the Croat Peasant Party or its leaders, who represent the great mass of the Croat nation; and whether the Allied authorities are pursuing a policy of promoting co-operation between Dr. Matcek's Croat Peasant Party and the liberation forces under Marshal Tito with a view to establishing united action between them.
§ Mr. Eden
His Majesty's Government have at present no direct contacts with the Croat Peasant Party. They would certainly welcome co-operation between the Party and the liberation forces under Marshal Tito, but they regard this as necessarily a matter for the two parties to arrange between themselves.
