HC Deb 18 April 1946 vol 421 cc490-1W
Major Symonds

asked the Prime Minister whether in view of the statement of the Australian Prime Minister that he is proposing to raise the question of the nationality of married women during his forthcoming conversations in London, and of the fact that South Africa is now in accord with the policy announced by His Majesty's Government in 1931, he will reconsider his decision not to discuss this issue with all the Dominions' Prime Ministers during the London conversations.

The Prime Minister:

In my previous reply to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers, I explained the reasons which seemed to me to preclude the discussion of this matter at the forthcoming meeting of Prime Ministers. If, however, the Dominion Prime Ministers desire that there should be an interchange of views on this subject I should be glad to make such arrangements as may be practicable.
