When a British member of I'ar- lliuiicnl, John Pnrkcr. Inquired hi Hit 1 House of Commons recently whether the British plnut to sun- porl the cession to Swll/.crlnnd o! Gcrmim enclaves.

'.'The merger of foreign territory to Swit/erland ou the basts "f a peace trcnly between forelRn poweis is oi-.l of the nuc.sllon," the paper said. One of the German enclaves In question is Uucslnucn, which Is completely surrounded by Swiss territory. There are other polnt.s where the Frontier leaves Gcrmim enclaves deep in Swiss soil. "These arc nil questions which Switzerland will clear up herself with Germany when she Is free nnd has control or her territory." the paper snld. "Such negotiations were In progress until Hitler came lo power. They were then broken off by the Third flcleh. "If we let ourselves c humlcti German territory In the peace treaties then we would tie actually pur- tlfipattiiB In the business of the victors, with which Ihc neutral should have nothing to do," the "National •/.ettimg" said. "We stny inside our borders, territorially and obtained valuable information yej;- polillcally."
