asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reply he has sent to the request made by the Austrian Government for a meeting with occupying Powers to discuss ways of alleviating the burdens of occupation.

No reply has yet been sent, but the Austrian proposal is being sympathetically considered.

While thanking the Foreign Secretary for that reply, may I ask him whether, if this meeting takes place, he will draw once more the attention of the Soviet Union to the fact that no obstacles stand in the way of the Austrian Treaty being concluded, and that in that way the burden of occupation can be finally concluded?
