HC Deb 15 March 1923 vol 161 c1811W
Lieut.-Colonel COURTHOPE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the Polish administration has prohibited the export of various articles from Eastern Galicia to Great Britain except under licence, while they allow the same articles to be exported freely to France; whether the Polish Government has any authority from the Allied Powers to regulate Galician exports in this manner; and what steps His Majesty's Government are taking in the matter?


His Majesty's Government are unaware that any restrictions of the nature suggested by the hon. Member have been placed on exports from East Galicia but are calling for a report on the matter from His Majesty's Minister at Warsaw. As the problem of East Galicia is now being considered by the Ambassadors' Conference, no useful purpose would be served by discussing the competence of the Polish Government to regulate exports from this territory.
