HC Deb 28 November 1938 vol 342 c22
24. Sir P. Harris

asked the Prime Minister whether he has any information as to the threat of the Poles to invade Ruthenia; and whether, in the light of the fact that the frontier has been fixed by the International Committee, the guarantee of the frontier will come into operation in the event of such invasion?

The Prime Minister

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. In reply to the second part of the question, I would observe that the changes in the Polish Czechoslovak frontier were all made as a result of direct agreement between the Polish and Czechoslovak Governments, and not fixed by the International Commission which is only concerned with the delimitation of Czechoslovakia's new frontiers with Germany. As regards the British guarantee of Czechoslovakia, I have nothing to add to the statement which I made on 14th November in reply to questions by my hon. Friends the Members for Bilston (Mr. Hannah) and Leeds West (Mr. V. Adams).
