HC Deb 14 November 1945 vol 415 cc2284-5W
Flight-Lieutenant Haire

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now in a position to announce the recognition by His Majesty's Government of the new Government of Hungary; and whether an early exchange of diplomatic representatives between Great Britain and Hungary can now take place.

Mr. Bevin

No new Government has yet been formed in Hungary as a result of the recent election. So soon, however, as a new Government is formed whose composition broadly reflects the result of these elections, His Majesty's Government will be prepared to enter into direct relations with it and to accept a Hungarian Government representative in London.
