HC Deb 28 February 1940 vol 357 c2035
1. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether it is proposed that the Polish Government shall participate in meetings of the Supreme War Council?

The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Butler)

It has been agreed that a Polish officer should be appointed to collaborate with the appropriate Anglo-French military authorities when questions affecting the employment of the Polish forces are under consideration. The Polish Government have nominated an officer for this purpose.

Mr. Mander

Would it not be in accordance with the spirit of the Anglo-Polish Treaty that there should be the closest possible co-operation and co-ordination at all meetings held between the Allies?

Mr. Butler

I am glad to say that this arrangement has been made in consultation with the Polish Government and has their approval.

Mr. Leach

May I ask when this Government was elected, where and when it sits, and what legislation it is passing?
