I would refer my hon. Friends to the "Declaration by the United Nations" signed at Washington on 1st January, the text of which has been published in the Press. The Declaration endorses the purposes and principles of the Atlantic Charter, the third article of which relates to the restoration of sovereign rights and self-government to those who have been forcibly deprived of them. In view of the establishment of the "United Nations," I cannot make any further statement on behalf of His Majesty's Government alone on the aims of the Allies, nor forecast the demands to be made eventually on the enemy.
