§ Mr. Edwin Brooks
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government that the present boundaries of Czechoslovakia and Poland should not be subject to negotiation at a German peace conference.
§ Mr. George Thomson
The final determination of the boundaries with Germany cannot be formalised until there is a peace settlement. As regards the frontier between Germany and Czechoslovakia 165W Her Majesty's Government take the view that no consideration should be given to any changes effected in 1938.
With regard to the Oder-Neisse line, Her Majesty's Government's policy, as frequently stated in the House, is that when the time comes to make a peace settlement one of the important factors to be taken into account must be the wishes of the present inhabitants of the territory concerned.
