§ 52. Mr. Robens
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what proposals Her Majesty's Government are making to fulfil their obligations under the peace treaty with Hungary with reference to the maintenance of human rights and the deportation of Hungarians.
§ Commander Noble
The House will recall that on 14th November, Mr. Kadar, in a broadcast speech, accepted the principle of free and honest elections with a multi-party system. But I fear that little reliance can be placed on such statements.48W Repression and deportations continue. Her Majesty's Government have repeatedly made clear their abhorrence of the ruthless oppression which has taken place in Hungary; but Soviet armed forces remain in occupation and individual action by Her Majesty's Government under the peace treaty is not possible. Her Majesty's Government have given their full support to the Resolution of the General Assembly of the United Nations of 4th November which called for the restoration of human rights in Hungary and the admission of United Nations observers.
