HC Deb 16 April 1957 vol 568 cc179-80W
62. Mr. Mikardo

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps he is proposing to take to increase trade with and to make credits available to Poland in the light of the Bermuda conversations.

Mr. Ian Harvey

As my right hon. and learned Friend told the House on 1st April, the question of increasing trade with Poland was discussed at Bermuda. Nothing that emerged from these discussions, however, alters the Government's previous policy either in respect of trade or of credits for Poland. This policy was explained to the House in answer to Questions by the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, Central (Dr. Stross) on 12th February and my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham, South (Mr. Keegan) on 1st April; and in the reply given by my right hon. and learned Friend the Minister of State, Board of Trade, to the hon. and learned Member for West Ham, South (Mr. Elwyn Jones) on 12th February.
