Icon108 Winston Churchill on displacing indigenous peoples

Comment: I recently found the quote "I do not agree that the dog in a
manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain
there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for
instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America
or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been
done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade
race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken
their place," attributed to Winston Churchill. Using google to look for
collaborating evidence, I find a large number of pro-palestine, anti-US or
white racist websites discussing it, but no credible unbiased sources. Is
there any primary documentation of this?
