§ 48. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
asked the Lord Privy Seal why, in a pamphlet called "The Meaning of Berlin", published by Her Majesty's Stationery 3W Office, areas to the east of the Oder-Neisse line are described as administered by Poland; and what is now the policy of Her Majesty's Government regarding the future of this boundary.
§ Mr. Heath
The Potsdam Agreement laid down that the final delimitation of the frontier between Germany and Poland should await a peace settlement, but that pending this settlement former German territories to the east of the Oder-Neisse line should be placed under Polish administration. Her Majesty's Government remain of the opinion that the final delimitation of this boundary cannot be formalised until there is a peace settlement, and that is why the map to Which the hon. Gentleman refers has been drawn in this way.
