asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reports he has recently had from the Inter-Allied Control Commission on recent political developments in Rumania; and if he will make a statement.

As I informed the House on 14th March a new Government assumed office in Rumania on 6th March. The British representative on the Allied Control Commission has been closely watching the situation, but his reports show that the new Government's assumption of office has not so far been marked by any outstanding political developments.

In the answer on 14th March my right hon. Friend referred to a strict censorship; may I ask whether that censorship has been lifted?

No, Sir, I should think that is most unlikely, but perhaps my hon. and gallant Friend would put that question down.
