HC Deb 28 February 1945 vol 408 c1401W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many British political representatives are at present in Finland, Bulgaria and Rumania, respectively; whether any political representatives are also in Yugoslavia; and how many British representatives are attached as the British section of the Control Commission to the said countries.

Mr. Eden

In each of the three states, Finland, Bulgaria and Rumania, there is a British Political Representative supported by an appropriate staff. In Yugoslavia there is at present a military mission under the hon. and gallant Member for Lancaster (Brigadier Maclean), with an appropriate staff. The British sections of the Control Commissions in Finland, Bulgaria and Rumania (which are quite distinct from the Political Missions) have official establishments respectively of 5 officers and 10 other ranks, 25 officers and 126 other ranks, and 24 officers and 126 other ranks, the actual figures being subject to periodical variations.
