7. Lieut.-Colonel Sir FREDERICK HALL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action has been taken by the Refugees Committee of the League of Nations to afford assistance to Russians who have sought refuge in Poland owing to religious persecution; whether such action was taken as the result of reports received from the Polish Government and, if not from what source the information as to the plight of these refugees was obtained; and if he will lay upon the Table papers on the subject?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
I understand that the Polish Government are considering what measures should be taken for the relief of the refugees who, for various reasons, have recently crossed the frontier 394 from the Soviet Union, As far as I am aware, the Refugees Committee of the League of Nations have not had the matter under consideration.
Sir F. HALL
Have the Refugees Committee had an opportunity of seeing and studying the suppressed report of the British Ambassador at Moscow?
§ Mr. BECKETT
Is any action being taken to assist the Polish refugees who are in Russia, Germany, and surrounding countries, and are suffering political persecution by their Government?
