§ 1. Mr. R. RICHARDSON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the Jewish population of Upper Silesia, comprising 20,000 people, a large proportion of the industrial population, voted unanimously in favour of remaining with Germany, knowing that their welfare lies with that country; and will cognisance be taken of that fact in the plebiscite award?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
The future of Upper Silesia will be decided in accordance with the Treaty of Versailles, which does not provide for any distinction being drawn between the votes of different races, sects or creeds.
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Whatever the final decision about Upper Silesia, will the minority clauses be enforced with regard to these Jewish minorities?
