§ 1. Mr. Mander
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the present position in Danzig: and whether the High Commissioner has now taken up his permanent residence there and is experiencing any difficulty in carrying out his duties?
§ The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Eden)
The High Commissioner arrived in Danzig to take up his post on 1st March. I understand that he left again shortly afterwards in order to make official contacts with the Polish Government. He has now returned to Danzig and is in permanent residence. Professor Burckhardt may be relied upon to bring to the Council's attention, in accordance with the terms of the report adopted by the Council on 27th January, any matters on which he considers that 168 they should be immediately informed. But he cannot be expected to make any general report on the situation until he has had time to examine it in all its aspects.
§ Mr. Mander
Is he not, in fact, being treated with just the same discourtesy and contempt as Mr. Lester was?
§ Sir Archibald Sinclair
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether there is free access on the part of citizens of Danzig to the High Commissioner?
Did not the High Commissioner accept office on condition that they should be held fairly soon?
