At the Crimea Conference in February, 1945, it was decided by the heads of the Governments of the Three Great Powers that the Eastern frontier of Poland should follow the Curzon line with digressions from it in some regions of five to eight kilometres in favour of Poland. As my hon. Friend will doubtless recollect, a tripartite announcement to this effect was published on 13th February, 1945.
I know all about that. That is why I asked the question. May I ask my right hon. Friend whether he still denies that this decision was taken at Teheran? If he still does, will he study the statement made by M. Mikolajczyk, who told us quite definitely what he was confronted with when he visited Moscow?
I do not think I can add to what I have already said on this subject, now and previously. I have no doubt that discussion took place at Teheran and equally I have no doubt that discussion took place at many other points upon this same subject. The decision is as I have announced.
Does not the right hon. Gentleman consider that one of the lessons learned from the war is that it would have saved everyone a lot of time and trouble if the hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes) had been taken to Yalta and Teheran?
