asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give an assurance that His Majesty's Government is in no way bound by the Vienna Award of 30th August, 1940, fixing a new boundary between Rumania and Hungary and will take steps to undo it at the earliest opportunity?

I would refer the hon. Member to the statement made by the Prime Minister in the House of Commons on 5th September, 1940, when he said, with particular reference to the Vienna Award, that we did not propose to recognise any territorial changes which took place during the war unless they took place with the consent and good-will of the parties concerned. This remains the attitude of His Majesty's Government.
