HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 c89W
115. Sir C. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the expense to this country of the upkeep of General Anders Polish Army in Italy, he will arrange for their civilian employment so that they may maintain themselves and at the same time help the country in which they live.

Mr. Bevin

The future of the Polish Army under British command has for some time been the subject of negotiations between His Majesty's Government and the Polish Provisional Government of National Unity. It is the desire of His Majesty's Government that the maximum number should return to Poland. The future of those Polish soldiers who do not wish to return to Poland is under examination.
