HC Deb 01 December 1952 vol 508 c108W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will now make a statement on his recent discussions with the President-Elect of the United States of America, and matters connected with his recent overseas visit.

Mr. Eden

I was glad to have the opportunity while in New York of talking with Mr. Eisenhower and some members of his future Administration. These talks were, of course, informal and private; but I can say that they left me in no doubt of the future Administration's desire to work closely with Her Majesty's Government and to maintain and strengthen our Atlantic partnership. As regards other matters of my overseas visit, I would refer the hon. Member to the statement I made in the House on 27th November.
