§ Mr. A. T. DAVIES
asked the Prime Minister whether an agreement between the British and French military authorities as to French railway transport in the British military area on the Rhine has been ratified by the British Government; and what is the nature of the agreement?
§ The PRIME MINISTER:
For the terms of the agreement reached with the French military authorities on this matter I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement made in the House by the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs on the 13th March. The agreement is regarded as reasonable by His Majesty's Government, but before bringing it formally into force it is obviously necessary to ensure that the German Government have issued the necessary instructions to the railway personnel concerned.
