HC Deb 01 November 1956 vol 558 c181W
50. Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether as a token of friendship between the British people and the peoples of Poland and Hungary, he will propose discussions with these two countries for the purpose of granting them a loan without political ties to enable these Governments to improve the standard of living of their people.

Mr. Dodds-Parker

My right hon. and learned Friend strongly shares the hon. Member's desire to help the peoples of Poland and Hungary. But he does not think that his proposal is practicable.
