HC Deb 22 May 1947 vol 437 c286W
86. Mr. Elwyn Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what instructions have been given to His Majesty's Government's representatives on the Balkan Commission at Geneva with regard to the proposal of the U.S. representatives that the Greek Government be recommended to grant a broader amnesty to political internees under international supervision.

Mr. Mayhew

As my right hon. Friend the Minister of State informed my hon. Friend the Member for Luton (Mr. Warbey) on 14th May, His Majesty's Government have grave doubts whether it falls within the terms of the United Nations Balkan Commission to make a recommendation on this subject, and the United Kingdom Representative on the Commission was instructed to bear this view in mind in discussing any proposals that might be put forward on the subject.
