HC Deb 30 March 1933 vol 276 c1197W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if his attention has been called to the petition to the League of Nations concerning the Ukrainian minority in Poland and the question of the establishment of an autonomous régime in the territory known as Eastern Galicia, supported by a large number of influential persons of all parties in this country; and whether the Government propose to request a thorough investigation of the case?


I understand that a private petition of the kind referred to by my hon. Friend has been addressed to the Secretary-General of the League of Nations. Whilst His Majesty's Government do not themselves contemplate raising this question, I can assure my hon. Friend that should the petition be found receivable and eventually be placed upon the agenda of the Council, it will receive most careful consideration.
