HC Deb 05 July 1944 vol 401 cc1163-4W
Sir R. Acland

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps have been taken to associate the representatives of the French Resistance Movement with the administration of liberated French territory.

Mr. Eden

As I stated in my speech on 25th May, His Majesty's Government are dealing with the French Committee of National Liberation as the French authority which will exercise leadership in France as her liberation proceeds. There is, of course, no question of dealing with the resistance movement in this connection as something separate from the Committee. The Central Council of the Movement accepts the Committee's authority and the Movement is strongly represented in the Consultative Assembly at Algiers and on the Committee itself.
