§ 34. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the indignation prevailing in Jewish circles in this country at the continued massacres of the defenceless Jewish populations in Polish towns; and whether he can see his way, in conjunction with the Allies, to take any steps that will put an end to these outrages?
The reply to the first part of the hon. Member's question is in the affirmative. In regard to the second part, His Majesty's Minister in Warsaw has already made representations to the Polish Government about the ill-treatment of Jews in Poland, and the United States Minister has done the same. I am confident, as I informed the hon. Member for the Hartlepools on 30th June, that these representations have been effective, and that the Polish Government are determined to prevent anything in the nature of organised attacks upon the persons or property of Jews.
I have already stated in the House that later Reports indicate that there has been exaggeration.
