HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 c4W
66. Mr. S. Silverman

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what proposals he has made or intends to make concerning the future of Germany to take the place of those of the Potsdam Agreement, now discarded; whether such proposals have been or will be submitted for agreement by all the Powers allied to us in the late war with Germany; and whether he will refrain from entering into any fresh agreement with any or all such Powers until it is known whether the new proposals enjoy the same parliamentary approval as those entered into at Potsdam.

Mr. Ernest Davies

As my right hon. Friend said on 13th November, the Soviet Government's recent proposal for a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers to examine the question of carrying out the Potsdam Agreement on the demilitarisation of Germany is being considered in consultation with the United States and French Governments. I do not think it would be wise to attempt, at this stage, to anticipate the outcome in any way.
