asked the Prime Minister whether he has any statement to make on the agreement announced by President Roosevelt to have been reached at the Moscow Conference?

I have nothing at present to add to the very full and very satisfactory official statement which appeared in the Press of yesterday about the Moscow Conference.

Is the right hon. Gentleman likely to be able to make a statement to the House in the near future?

Cannot my right hon. Friend tell the House now that this will be used as an occasion for a full-dress Debate upon foreign affairs? Cannot I have an answer?

That is very much the same question put in a different form. My answer was that I have at present nothing to add to the statement.

Will my right hon. Friend not agree that it is desirable that hon. Members should hear a statement from the Prime Minister and not be compelled to rely exclusively on Press reports?

I am quite sure that the Prime Minister, who very frequently does come to this House, will make a statement at what he considers is the appropriate time.
