asked the Prime Minister how North Africa will be governed in the future; and whether General de Gaulle and General Giraud will be consulted?

French North Africa is at present administered by the French civil and military High Command under General Giraud at Algiers, subject to certain powers which the Allied Commander-in-Chief enjoys in virtue of the arrangement which he concluded with the local French authorities after the Allied landings last November. Any alteration in these arrangements would presumably be a matter for discussion between the parties concerned. General de Gaulle is not yet associated with the French High Command in North Africa.
