HC Deb 20 November 1919 vol 121 c1188W
Lieut. - Colonel WILLEY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if, in view of the continual immobilisation of a large part of organised industry in Poland dependent on imported raw materials, any further Allied action is proposed with a view to facilitating importaton; what is the system of out-of-work allowance being made to unemployed operatives, particularly in textile centres in Poland; and whether their continued unemployment in the coming winter endangers serious risk of grave internal disorder?


The answer to the first part of the hon. and gallant Member's question is that the subject of facilitating the import of raw materials into Poland is receiving the constant attention of the Supreme Economic Council; as regards the second part, I have no detailed information to give; I would prefer not to hazard opinion as regards the third part.
