§ Sir E. Graham-Little
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what time limit was imposed by His Majesty's Government for the fulfilment of the conditions upon which the present Polish Provisional Government of National Unity was provisionally recognised; and what steps he proposes to take to withdraw that recognition in view of the non-fulfilment of those conditions.
§ Mr. Mayhew
No time limit has been imposed for the fulfilment of the conditions upon which the Polish Provisional Government of National Unity was recognised by the signatories of the Yalta and Potsdam Agreements. The principal condition of this recognition was that free and unfettered elections should be held. The Polish Provisional Government have stated that elections will be held this year and have recently issued an electoral law. His Majesty's Government trust that the Polish Provisional Government will fulfil the conditions to which they are pledged. Meanwhile they will continue to watch developments in Poland with close interest and attention.
