§ 56. Mr. NOEL BUXTON
asked the Prime Minister whether any protest has been made by His Majesty's Government to the Polish Government regarding the compulsion exercised on the people of Eastern Galicia to force them to take part in the elections for the Warsaw Diet; and whether he will consult with the Allied and associated Governments regarding measures for defining the status of Eastern Galicia in accordance with the will of the population?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The Allied Powers have the question of Eastern Galicia under consideration, but no definite decision has been taken with regard to the ultimate status of the territory.
§ Lord ROBERT CECIL
Can the hon. Gentleman indicate when the Allied Powers are likely to arrive at a decision in this matter, which has been under consideration, not only for many months, but for years?
